Rasmussen also shared that more people reported trusting a friend or family member with election news than a member of the media.

Carlson noted that a similar Fox News poll that a higher number of respondents — 61 percent — felt the media favored Obama over Romney.

A later Rasmussen poll also showed that more people (47 percent versus 42 percent) are worried about media bias than campaign contributions, with Mr. Rasmussen adding that Republicans tend to be more concerned with the former, Democrats with the latter.
