Poll: Conservative News Viewers Are The Least Informed People On The Coronavirus

A new Knight Foundation/Gallup poll finds that conservative news viewers are more than twice as likely to be uninformed about the coronavirus as those who take in sources like CNN and MSNBC.

A staggering 57 percent of the conservative news consumers (e.g., Fox News, Breitbart, One America News, the National Review) falsely believe that the coronavirus is “less deadly than or as deadly as flu,” while only 28 percent of those who are liberal news consumers (e.g., MSNBC, The New York Times, CNN, Vox) believe the false claim.
