  •  Study found misperceptions for viewers of MSNBC (0+ / 0-)

    but they were not as highly correlated, so the misperception could be internal, i.e. they were mispercieving facts based on the entirely of bad news reporting, or were had their own political biases they used to filter what they were watching.  Bad reporting was not restricted to just MSNBC.  Furthermore, many of the misperceptions were not as politically salient.  Early in the questionnaire, respondents were asked to rank how important certain issues were to their vote, the differences in means allows you to see what issues were politically salient to differnt kinds of voters.  Misperceptions by frequent viewers of MSNBC tended to be on issues that were lower in political salience.
