Stupid is as stupid does: 67% of Democrats trust ‘fake news’ CNN

The phrase “Stupid is as stupid does” was popularized by the movie Forrest Gump. It means “One’s actions indicate one’s level of stupidity (or intelligence).”

A new Pew Research Center survey found that, unsurprisingly, Democrats and Republicans differ in how trusting they are about the media.

The Oct. 29–Nov. 11, 2019 survey  asked 12,043 U.S. adults whether they trust the following 30 media outlets:

Not only are Democrats more trusting of the 30 media outlets, Democrats actually trust “fake news” CNN the most!

We should remember, Covington Catholic came out against their own students when this story first broke.

We should remember, the Bishop later apologized to Nick, students and parents.

And lest we forget CNN settled a lawsuit with Nick.

Proof positive that a cure for stupidity would cure a lot of things.

Look, most of these people didn’t get to where they got by being stupid. That defies logic. So that means they must know (or at least the great majority of them know) that what they’re peddling is garbage. So why do it? Either: a) They’ve been blackmailed and are totally compromised (think Anderson Cooper, et al), or b) There’s something that’s been promised to them when all’s said and done (think judge Napolitano, et al). Of course, there is the group personified by Chris “Fredo” Cuomo that really don’t have enough functioning brain cells to see the big picture. To… Read more »

When you are deluded, it’s nice to have supposed major news agency that supports your delusion.

Why shouldn’t they. CNN is telling them exactly what they want to hear.

Rush Limbaugh wasn’t in the top trusted sites for either Dems or Republicans. He stands behind his news on his own reputation and has been on radio 30 years which is saying something. Perhaps they should of asked who you trust more, Democrats or Republicans. Who actually tells the truth, although I must admit, AOC tells the truth when she says she’s a Socialist if not a Communist and would run her government that way and Bernie Sanders says the same thing,so I think those two tell the truth, but Elizabeth Warren is having trouble finding the truth it seems… Read more »

I can only speak from personal experience on why people are still voting Democrat / Communist. My husband is in his 70’s and a few years ago bled out after hernia surgery. He required 9 units of blood and they couldn’t even move him from ER to ICU for 10 hours while they were working on saving him. Long story short while lawyers are eager to help someone sue a bakery because they refuse to do a gay wedding cake, no lawyers will take a case of medical malpractice where the man bled out and his common sense and short… Read more »

Amazing. Thanks for the stats. A friend just got in my face with an accusation that the Trump team are caught in 3 lies. Her source: CNN.

Well, my DVR got smart today and refused to record 80% of my Sunday news wrap-up shows. Which is good, because after watching bits & feces of the Senate hearings last week, I tuned in to YouTube to see MSNBC folks blathering amongst themselves RE: turn-about after the GOP weighed in. BTW, where was that channel in this poll? I, being logical, thought they’d have said, “Oh, we’d forgotten about all those actual facts brought out in testimony over in the House a month or two ago. How were we so gullible as to have been led on by the… Read more »

Just a memory: the last time I watched CNN was in the 1980’s when we moved from the Middle Atlantic East Coast to live & work in the High Primitive Unita Mountains in a tiny village of maybe 2,000 in Utah, for the US Public Health Service, Indian Health Service—– and for some weird reason, they laid cable so we could get cable TV (other larger “towns” of maybe 30,000 within a 30-50 MILE radius of us did NOT get this–could have had something to do with Tribal land deals?). Otherwise, the only TV we could have gotten was PBS… Read more »

OANN. PERIOD. (One America News Network)
Channel 347 on Direct TV.
I don’t know of any other carriers that offer it.
It’s worth watching.
