We Asked Trump Supporters What They Think About The Media

"I think they full of crap. I call them poop shovelers," one Trump supporter told BuzzFeed News.

Posted on

Donald Trump has frequently blamed journalists — who he's called "a really dishonest group of people" and "crooked" — and the media for his campaign's low points.

So, at three Trump campaign rallies, BuzzFeed News asked supporters at rallies in Altoona and Erie, Pennsylvania and Fairfield, Connecticut what they think of how the media has covered his campaign.

One man was asked whether he saw media bias as "an institutional thing" or if he thinks any reporter, on an individual level, "is like that."
