Newsflash: Sun Rises in East!

And here's another flash of the blindingly obvious: Rasmussen reports that most Americans think political reporters are biased in their reporting, according to a June 7th poll:

Just 17% of voters nationwide believe that most reporters try to offer unbiased coverage of election campaigns. A Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey found that four times as many—68%--believe most reporters try to help the candidate that they want to win.

The perception that reporters are advocates rather than observers is held by 82% of Republicans, 56% of Democrats, and 69% of voters not affiliated with either major party. The skepticism about reporters cuts across income, racial, gender, and age barriers.

Move along, nothing to see here.
