The left-wing Axios focuses instead on the Republican number of 92 percent, as if to say this is a partisan problem…
(Breitbart) More than two-thirds of Americans, a full 72 percent, believe “traditional news outlets knowingly report false or misleading stories,” according to a Axios/SurveyMonkey poll.
Only 25 percent of Americans believe the media “rarely” or “never” deliberately report fake news.
