Almost one-third of Americans, 29 percent, said in a new poll that they agree that “the news media is the enemy of the … people.”

Twelve percent of Democrats and 26 percent of independents shared that opinion in the Ipsos poll released Tuesday, as did 48 percent of Republicans, which constituted a plurality for that party.

President Trump first used the characterization for the news media in a tweet less than a month into his term, exclaiming various media outlets are “not my enemy,” but the “enemy of the American People!”

An overwhelming majority of all respondents signaled support for the media in general, with 85 percent saying “freedom of the press is essential for American democracy.”

  1. “freedom of the press is essential for American democracy” when Democrats want to ban conservative media and already removed many sites from Google and Twitter? HYPOCRITES! LIARS! DEFINITELY MORE than 1/3 of Americans who say THE MEDIA IS THE ENEMY OF THE PEOPLE!

  2. And almost two-thirds of Americans, 65 percent, would say in a poll that they agree that the polls are the enemy of the American people because they give a false impression of being accurate. Which they are not.

  3. That mainstream is the enemy of the people is a fact, even though there are fools still listening or reading it. The more Google, Fakebook, Twitter, Fake News and Democrats try to censor conservative – alt-right news, the higher the ranking. Infowars is #4 – higher than Google, higher than CNN, NYT, ABC, MSNBC, Washington Post and even Fox News.
