Neither Republicans nor Democrats are likely to trust that the news media are giving them "very accurate" information, according to a new survey.
The survey, published Thursday by the Media Insight Project, said that only 31 percent of Democrats and 8 percent of Republicans said they trust the news they consume to be "very accurate."
The numbers were roughly the same when asked whether they trust the information they're receiving "a lot" (30 percent of Democrats to 8 percent of Republicans,) and if they believed the media "keep them very well informed on important issues" (38 percent of Democrats to 20 percent of Republicans).
Perception of media bias was more likely found in Republicans than Democrats.
Asked whether they believed the media they consume contain biases, 33 percent of Republicans said it's "too liberal." Only 12 percent of Democrats said they believed the media they consume is "too conservative."
