(POLL) Media coverage of Israel-Hamas conflict getting mixed reviews


Less than half of voters think the news media are doing a good job covering the Gaza war, but Democrats have a more favorable view.

That’s according to the latest Rasmussen Reports.

The survey finds that 39% of likely U.S. voters rate the news media’s coverage of the current conflict between Israel and the Palestinians as good or excellent, while 30% give the media’s coverage a poor rating.

Fifty-six percent (56%) of Democrats rate media coverage of the Israel-Palestinian conflict as good or excellent, but that opinion is shared by only 30% of Republicans and 28% of voters not affiliated with either major party.

The media’s coverage of the Gaza war gets poor ratings from 35% of Republicans, 18% of Democrats and 38% of unaffiliated voters.

Thirty-three percent (33%) of all likely voters say they trust the political news they are getting – a slight uptick from 30% in May – but a majority (52%) still don’t trust the news they’re getting. 

Fifteen percent are not sure.

  1. Of course Dems would approve because the majority of the coverage shows Israel in a bad light. The magma of anti-Semitism that has been flowing beneath the Left is now exploding for all to see.

  2. The American media has become the propaganda arm of the globalist progressive movement that has been infecting the western nations for the last 50 years. They are not to be trusted.

  3. When first reported about the Hamas attack on Israel it was big news until Israel declared war on Hamas. Now its pretty much one sided reporting about the evil Israel government and their war on Hamas. Biden and the west all want a pause, constant talk about the humanitarian issues of war. I don’t ever remember any of this talk when we were carpet bombing, napalm flaming Vietnamese villages in the 60’s-70’s during the Vietnam War.

  4. It would help the Israeli cause if the IDF did not have such mediocre propaganda. When the overcrowded Al Shifa hospital was raided, the IDF showed a few supplies they most likely brought in themselves in boxes with large English labels. The hospital had run out of fuel, water, medicines and it is heart wrenching to see people suffer like that while heavily armed armed IDF soldiers walk around among them.

    To Harold Hull – then you must not have been around to see them! Even as a little kid I remember the stories of reprobate protests at places like Berkeley University and many other places that national guard troops were called in to be attacked and soldiers spit on in airports not to mention Hanoi Jane Fonda flying to Hanoi as the communists parties honored guest and gave public speeches about how wrong America and its soldiers were to even be there.. no – you don’t have a clue Harold so just STFU!
