A new Pew survey finds that many Americans consider made-up news to be a bigger problem than issues like terrorism and climate change.

In the survey, reported by Axios this morning, 50 percent of respondents said made-up news is a very big problem.

This ranks between 49 percent who said the same about violent crime and 51 percent who said “gap between rich & poor” are big problems.

More people consider made-up news a big problem than consider terrorism (34 percent), climate change (46 percent), and illegal immigration (38 percent) big problems.

The survey shows a majority of respondents blame political leaders and activist groups for made-up news, while 53 percent say the news media itself has the biggest responsibility to tamp down on it.

If you look at some of the results by party, a majority of Republicans blame journalists for creating made-up news––58 percent––compared to only 20 percent of Democrats.

You can read the full results here.

It kind of makes you wonder if the country isnt fucked no matter what happens.  The right is so brainwashed at this point that there is little hope of any of those true believers coming to their senses. The Democrats can certainly win, but the country will still be completely divided. 

"Conservatives" at this point believe a known pathological liar over the nation's media.

I think anyone with an IQ above room temperature would know what you say is not true. You can't be serious when you say we should trust the far left, lock step, all-together-now, 1, 2, 3.....media, about anything. You need to quit watching CNN And MSNBC all the time.

Well, a majority of people probably encounter fake news on a regular basis more than crime or terrorism.
