Mainstream media not reporting on Obama’s very low poll numbers.

At this point, talking about how the mainstream media worships everything Obama says and does and doesn’t objectively report what’s really going on in Washington D.C. seems like beating a dead horse, but the facts are the facts and need to be put out there.  Journalism is dead.  Very sad.

It’s no secret that television news has long been addicted to public opinion polls; decades ago, all three broadcast networks decided to partner with an influential newspaper (ABC News with the Washington Post; CBS News with the New York Times; and NBC News with the Wall Street Journal) to sponsor their own regular surveys for use in their political coverage.

That’s why it’s so extraordinary that polling news has practically vanished from the Big Three evening newscasts in 2014 as President Obama’s approval ratings have tumbled and the public opposes defining administration policies like ObamaCare. Just last Thursday, for example, Gallup found Obama’s approval rating at a record low of 38 percent, yet none of the three broadcast networks bothered to mention this on their evening or morning newscasts.
