More Democrats than Republicans OK with how media covers science
September 20, 2017

More Democrats than Republicans think the news media does a good job of covering science, according to the results of a new study.

The Pew Research Center polled more than 4,000 U.S. adults and found that although most — 54% — regularly get their science news from general news outlets that cover a range of topics, just 28% believed these sources get the facts right. Specialty sources, including museums, science magazines and documentaries, were trusted more, with around half of respondents saying they are accurate most of the time.
