A new poll confirmed something you really didn’t need a poll to confirm: You’re SICK AND TIRED OF THE NEWS.
According to the Pew Research Center, 68% of Americans have news fatigue. Conservatives have more burnout than liberals, which makes sense, since so much of the news these days is anti-TRUMP. But people are fed up on both sides.
Among people who lean right, 77% say they feel news fatigue. On the left, it’s 61%.
Surprisingly, 58% of Americans say the news media do “fairly well” at keeping the public informed. 17% say they’re doing “very well”, and 24% think they’re not doing well at all.
