Editor's Notes

  1. 2014 report: look at relationship b/t current pol env’t in Amer & people’s pol news habits Shed light on pol polarization: looks at ways people get info abt gov’t & pol in news media, social media & interpersonally Overall, those w/ most consistent ideological views on left & right have info streams distinct from indiv w/ more mixed pol views – & very distinct from each other. Can be overstated. Study also suggests that virtually impossible to live in ideo bubble. Most Americans rely on array of outlets, & most hear dissenting political views Consis cons (furthest on right): tightly clustered around 1 news source, far more than any other ideo group About ½ cite Fox News as main political news source Asked about 36 news sources: expressed greater distrust than trust of 24 Consis Libs (furthest on left): Not as tightly clustered around 1 source; a greater range of news outlets named as main source – like NPR & NYT Express more trust than distrust of 28 of 36 news outlets
  2. At least as impt as where turn for news is who they trust (strong ideo diff). Chart: levels of trust to distrust for each source (overall & by ideological group) Purple: more trusted than distrusted Yellow: more distrusted than trusted Grey: about equally trusted and distrusted As already suggested, libs trust much larger mix of news outlets. Of 36, 28 more trusted than distrusted by consis libs. Among consis cons, 24 draw more distrust than trust. Of 8 outlets more trusted than distrusted by consis cons, all but one more distrusted by consis libs.
