Accuracy in Media

Interesting findings:

A Morning Consult poll found that many young people learned about Facebook’s censorship of conservative news outlets from Facebook itself.

The poll surveyed 2,000 registered voters to determine how many were aware of the allegations that Facebook was censoring conservative news outlets in its newsfeed.

Of those who were aware of the alleged conservative censorship, 18 percent said they learned of the story through Facebook itself. Facebook was second only to television, which 31 percent of respondents reported as their source, while online news sites made up 11 percent. Nine percent found out by word of mouth. Other social media was the least-reported source, with only 7 percent learning of the story from non-Facebook platforms.
