You’re Sick and Tired of the News

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.
