Also the report finds that only about a quarter say that news organizations are careful that their reporting is not politically biased, compared with 60% who say news organizations are politically biased.
And the percentages saying that news organizations are independent of powerful people and organizations (20%) or are willing to admit their mistakes (21%) now also match all-time lows.
