    This poll is pretty insane. Does it point to the dishonest media coverage of unarmed black shootings by police? It seems pretty clear to me given that only 27 black men were killed by police in 2019, and a bunch of people thought that it was a hundred or a thousand! A majority of very liberal people thought that it was a thousand or more! And the more conservative that people are, the more accurate they are! So how about that!

    Yep. Not only is the coverage wrong it's loud and pervasive.

    Dishonest coverage? Show me when someone in the media told their viewers or readers there were more murders of unarmed black people than there were.

    Why is it necessary to explicitly say that there are more?

    I think it’s cute you rely on polls are factual evidence. :roflol:
    And I was referring to overall perceptions. Not just this one subject.

    Is it fair to equate a situation where conservatives believe the election was stolen from Trump because their preferred media sources told them it was..............with a situation where liberals believe there were more shootings of unarmed black people by police because the media sources they use put more emphasis on covering those shootings?
    I know of no media outlet claiming 1,000 unarmed black people were shot by police. I do know of media outlets claiming the election was stolen from Trump.

    The difference is repetition. The coverage of killing of unarmed black men tends to be repeated more often on MSNBC than on Fox.

    If nothing else, it should be noted that conservatives are more accurate in their perception of unarmed blacks being killed by police. It isn't even close.

    Dominion and Smartmatic have serious shot at victory in election disinformation suits, experts say

    Dominion Voting Systems and Smartmatic USA have a good shot at winning their billion-dollar defamation suits against a host of conservative personalities and, in the case of Smartmatic, Fox News, but they still have a lot to prove in court, experts say.

    Each of the two election technology firms has sued several boosters of former President Donald Trump, saying that they worked to spread conspiracy theories about each company’s products in order to cast doubt on President Joe Biden’s electoral victory.

    It wasn't a distorted perception leading viewers of Faux to jump on the "stop the steal" bandwagon. They question the legitimacy of the election because they were told there were reasons to question it. Those reasons were lies.

    Lets be honest -- Look at the big picture -- one unarmed black man shot by police and the MSM gives us wall-to-wall coverage. Two dozen blacks shot over a weekend in Detroit and the MSM doesn't cover it. And remember the marchers with the signs "Hands Up, Don't Shoot"? That was a lie but the MSM put the marchers in our face 24/7. Now you tell me the MSM doesn't have an agenda and is slanting the news. The OP has the facts, but feel free to ignore them.

    That's not being honest. Just because the murder of George Floyd garnered weeks of coverage due to the nationwide protests it spawned, and during that period the murders of other unarmed black people were highlighted, doesn't mean it's an ordinary circumstance.
    The OP has slanted the facts just as you have. I chose not to ignore it.

    Other black men killed by the police also got wall to wall coverage for months. Roughly ten times as many people got killed in the riots than were killed by the police to start with.

    You seem to be under the impression that polls must be interpreted as fact in order to use them.
