(POLL) Majority say intel agencies influence media’s political coverage, have “political agenda”

A majority of voters believe that U.S. intelligence agencies follow their own political agenda, and two-thirds suspect the agencies are influencing the news media.

That’s according to Rasmussen Reports.

Sixty-five percent (65%) think it is likely that US intelligence agencies are influencing news media coverage of political issues, including 38% who believe it’s “very likely.”

Fifty-one percent (51%) say they now think the intelligence agencies have their own political agenda – up from 45% in 2018 – while 36% believe the agencies generally perform impartially. 

The survey found that 48% of likely voters view the CIA favorably, including 17% with a “very favorable” impression.

Forty-one percent (41%) view the CIA unfavorably, including 22% with a “very unfavorable” opinion.

  1. Name a major media outlet and it’s guaranteed that one of the intel agencies has one or more people working there.

  2. I once thought I would sound too radical to say the following: The Corporate Media is an Intel Agency. Mockingbird was the gateway drug that ensured the Langley clowns (and other agencies within the DC Hive) would one day (now) operate the entire media circus. The few remaining mainstream ‘fringe reporters’ such as Sharyl Attkisson and Tucker may be exceptions to the rule.
