August 13, 2021: Forty-eight percent (48%) of voters believe news networks and personalities are more interested in building influence and power rather than accurately reporting the news. A Scott Rasmussen national survey found that 31% take the opposite view and believe the news outlets are more interested in accurate reporting.[1]

By a 58% to 25% margin, Republicans believe news networks are most interested in building influence and power. Democrats are evenly divided.[1]

Most voters with a postgraduate degree believe the news outlets prioritize accurate reporting. Most other voters disagree.[1]

Data released earlier found that just 39% of voters believe reporters would honestly report information that contradicts their own partisan and ideological views.[1]
