Poll: 51 percent say reporters are trying to hurt Palin - Yahoo! News (broken link)
Over half of U.S. voters (51%) think reporters are trying to hurt Sarah Palin with their news coverage, and 24% say those stories make them more likely to vote for Republican presidential candidate John McCain in November.

Thirty-nine percent (39%) also believe the GOP vice presidential nominee has better experience to be president of the United States than Democratic presidential nominee Barack Obama.

I'm sure Democrats are willing to concede to say that reporters are trying to hurt Palin, especially since the survey is anonymous.

This Venn diagram has a higher degree of intersection than you realize.

Absolutely. I can't believe there is even a poll about it, but the results do not surprise me at all. Thank God for Fox News in a sea of Campbell Browns, Wolf Blitzers, Idiotic Keith Olbermanns, and Chris Matthews. Did I mention Katie Courics and the Matt Lauers out there?

When its neverending garbage about Michelle Obama or Reverend Wright or Barack Obama's patriotism, not a peep about media bias. Now that its Sarah Palin, oh the outrage.

Spare us the feigned indignance.

And this poll can be inserted where it belongs, the circular file.

dont you think alot of what she said contradicted what many republicans have been doing, you know with the big corporations, lobbyist etc...

if she was talking about the people who were elites as democrats, havent the republicans said the same exact thing.

theres too many contradictions and yet people cannot see them

How is reporting facts trying to hurt her. Was the furor over Jerimiah Wright a media construction? Just facts. If she wants to correct any inaccuracies or clarify positions she has a pretty big stage to do that on.
