In the wake of the George Stephanopoulos scandal, most voters doubt the accuracy of political news coverage and think most reporters will slant their coverage of the 2016 presidential campaign.

A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 61% of Likely U.S. Voters now do not trust the political news they are getting. That’s a 16-point jump from 45% last October. Twenty-one percent (21%) still have confidence in the political coverage they get, but that’s down from 33% in the earlier survey. Seventeen percent (17%) are not sure.
