People and the Press

American voters and politicians have one big thing in common — a majority of them don't like the press and overwhelmingly dislike political press. In a new Public Policy Polling survey released last week, a whopping 78 percent of respondents said they have an unfavorable view of the Washington press corps. Democrats have a little less disdain than Republicans, giving the press the thumbs down by 65 to 91 percent. (Photo: GettyImages)
