August 10, 2021: If a reporter uncovered some information that contradicted their ideological and partisan political views, 39% of voters believe they would report that information honestly. A Scott Rasmussen national survey found that 34% believe they would hide it and 27% are not sure.[1]

By a 50% to 26% margin, Democrats believe journalists would report the information even if it contradicted their own views. By a 45% to 31% margin, Republicans take the opposite view. They tend to believe that reporters would hide the information to protect their ideological and partisan views. Independent voters are evenly divided.[1]

Voters who prefer Trump-like policies are skeptical. By a 47% to 30% margin, they believe the reporters would hide the information. The voters who prefer traditional Republican policies are evenly divided: 41% believe the information would be reported and 38% believe it would be hidden.[1]

Most urban voters believe reporters would release the information even though it contradicted their own views. A plurality of rural voters take the opposite view, and suburban voters are evenly divided.[1]

Two-thirds (64%) of voters with a postgraduate degree trust reporters to release the information. Among all other higher education levels, opinion is fairly evenly divided.[1]
