According to a recent survey, more than half of individuals who get their news from CNN and MSNBC think that Hispanics are growing more conservative at the polls because they are consuming “disinformation,” even if the same viewers believe misleading narratives.
One thousand respondents were asked what factors they believed were influencing the Hispanic tendency to lean more toward the right in the study. The propagation of “disinformation” was cited by 57% of MSNBC viewers as the reason why Hispanics voted Republican, and by 54% of CNN viewers. A further 16% of MSNBC survey respondents and 20% of CNN respondents said that Hispanics lean Republican because of “internalized prejudice” and a “want to integrate into white culture.”
Conor Maguire, principal and managing director of WPA, said that “Common sense indicates that disinformation isn’t restricted to just one side of the political divide, but so much of the media’s emphasis concentrates on lies on the political Right. We thus sought to investigate the prevalence of conspiracies and lies among left-wing voters.”
According to a further analysis of the data, 61% of Biden supporters and 60% of white Dems think that Republicans are tricking Hispanics into voting for them. Only around 30% of white Democrats and Biden supporters believe that more Hispanics are truly socially conservative and hence tilt further to the right.
The study measured how many viewers of CNN and MSNBC had personally believed misleading reports in addition to questioning left-leaning respondents about the misinformation allegedly contributing to Hispanics becoming conservative.
Regular CNN viewers feel that it is partly or largely true that former Russian Pres. Vladimir Putin rigged the election in favor of Donald Trump, and almost half of MSNBC viewers share this opinion. The Russian connection theory was shown to be nothing more than a failed effort by legacy media outlets and Dems to explain Donald Trump’s victory over Clinton after persistent prodding and investigations into the Trump campaign and administration.
The WPA survey also questioned viewers of CNN and MSNBC whether they believed that Florida’s passage of the “Parental Rights in Education” measure resulted in a ban on the term “gay” in all public schools. A startling 63% of MSNBC viewers, 64% of CNN viewers, and about two-thirds of all Democratic respondents agreed that Florida’s prohibition on the use of the term “gay” in schools is mostly or mainly accurate. The Florida law forbids instructors from teaching about gender identity and sexual orientation to students in kindergarten through third grade.
According to a bogus claim made by the lefty website Salon, 38% of CNN viewers and 30% of MSNBC viewers believe the Florida government mandates university teachers to register their political affiliation with the state.
“Our poll found that a large portion of Democrats, self-described liberals, and MSNBC and CNN viewers believe objectively untrue things,” said Maguire. “These beliefs range from the absurd notion that the state of Florida requires university students and professors to register their political views with the state to the baseless belief that the 2016 election was rigged by Russia.” Democrats and their sympathizers have undoubtedly received a pass on their falsehoods as a result of the corporate media’s political and constrained concentration on Right-wing myths.
According to the online WPA poll, 22% of Democrats believed that “Some guys can become pregnant.” When women were the only group included, the proportion increased, and a staggering 36% of college-educated white female Dems agreed.
