How The Media Reported A Pew Study About Itself
A Pew study examined who Americans go to for news, which outlets they trust most and how liberals and conservatives live in different media worlds.By Steven Sparkman | October 21, 2014
The media loves a good story about the media, and what better occasion for some self-analysis than the release of Pew Research Center's latest study on how Americans consume their news?
The study, called "Political Polarization & Media Habits," broke down survey respondents by political affiliation, asking them where they get their news and which sources they trust.
The big take-away making all the headlines is that liberals and conservatives live in basically opposite media worlds, visiting sites that align with what they already think.
