Good news, America, even in these partisan times, most of us can agree on one thing: The political media is horrible. (Wait, that doesn't sound like good news at all....)
A new Daily Kos/SEIU poll conducted by the Democratic-leaning Public Policy Polling found that nearly 8 in 10 people (78 percent) hold an unfavorable view of the political media. Just 10 percent, meanwhile, had good things to say about the outlets producing political journalism. Or, in the words of the Daily Kos: "Everyone agrees—the political media sucks."
In only three demographic blocks did approval rating for political news sources break out of the teens, and the highest was among those who did not complete high school, at a still rather meager 25 percent.
The partisan gap is still somewhat perceptible: an overwhelming 91 percent of Republicans disapprove of the media, compared with just 65 percent of Democrats who hold the same view.
