Everyone Is Shocked by Trump’s New ‘Mainstream Media Accountability Survey’: ‘It’s Deranged’
Donald Trump and the GOP released a “Mainstream Media Accountability Poll” that more or less backs up his anti-press press conference from yesterday, even before the results are collected.
Here are a few of the questions.

As you might be able to tell, people are not so happy about how pointedly anti-media the questions are or that after asking them, the survey collects participants’ email addresses then asks for donations. Calls for left-leaning people to take the survey to “balance” out the responses are rampant on Twitter. Some are calling it blatant propaganda or worse.
The President of the United States has an online poll on the press’s coverage of him. It is deranged. Take it. https://t.co/5RQNFx5hew
