    Two-thirds (67.9 percent) of Americans surveyed think that “objective and fair journalism is dead,” while an overwhelming 89.3 percent believe the news media played a role in the election of President Barack Obama.

    That is what a poll conducted earlier this month by the Sacred Heart University Polling Institute showed. The survey, “Trust and Satisfaction with the National News Media,” polled 800 people nationwide and revealed that only 24.3 percent of Americans believe all or most reporting.

    There has not been "objective and fair" journalism in the history of the world. What any one person thinks is "objective and fair" another person thinks is "biased and unfair".

    ...and the other 30.1 percent just isn't paying attention.
