In a demonstration that the American media is failing regularly on its basic function of educating the American public, a Bloomberg poll shows that the American public believes that the budget deficit is increasing and that we deported more people ten years ago than today.
A Bloomberg Politics poll shows that on two controversial issues, the budget deficit and deporting illegal immigrants, the public believes Obama's critics–even though reality favors the president.
By 73 percent to 21 percent, the public says the federal budget deficit has gotten bigger during the Obama presidency.
Of course, the deficit is WAY down since President Obama was elected and deportations are WAY up from ten years ago. This shows that conservatives mostly succeed by controlling the agenda and lying about reality, and that the supposed "liberal" media is not only not liberal, but not doing its job.
