[Page H8707] From the Congressional Record Online through the Government Publishing Office [www.gpo.gov] VOTERS ARE ANGRY AT MEDIA (Mr. MOONEY of West Virginia asked and was given permission to address the House for 1 minute and to revise and extend his remarks.) Mr. MOONEY of West Virginia. Madam Speaker, a Rasmussen poll conducted on October 2 of 2019 found that a sky-high 69 percent of independent voters were ``angry'' at the media, and over 60 percent of all voters share that anger. These voters are not upset at the media because they are balanced and fair, they are upset because the media is biased and telling them what to think--or not telling them at all. The results of this astounding poll didn't appear in the Nation's largest newspapers or the most watched TV news programs and was hardly mentioned on social media. The media's credibility is already at a record low. The road back to credibility for the media is to give the American people the truth and let them make up their own minds. ____________________
