Accuracy in Media

A new Pew Research Center study found that two-thirds of Americans think that journalists behave unethically either all, most or some of the time and that 53 percent of Americans believe that their unethical behavior results in serious consequences only a little or none of the time.  In addition, 54 percent of respondents believed that journalists admit mistakes only a little or none of the time.

The survey, which was conducted between Nov. 27 and Dec. 10, 2018, largely reinforces what conservatives have been saying about the media for decades and aligns with what happened at the New York Times this past week with its “bombshell” report on U.S. Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh that wound up blowing up in their face after the Times had to issue an Editor’s Note to correct the original story — after it was noted by The Federalist’s Mollie Hemingway that one of the accusers referred to in the Times piece couldn’t recall the incident according to her friends.
