Most Democrats, at 63 per cent, and independents, at 52 per cent, do not believe that the media is biased toward either candidate, Gallup found.

By contrast, the vast majority of Republicans, at 86 per cent, perceive media bias, and nearly all of them, at 80 per cent, believe the bias favors Clinton.

Among independents and Democrats who perceive bias, large majorities also believe the bias favors Clinton.

In the US, perceptions of a liberal media bias have been prevalent throughout this century.

According to Gallup, the increased perception of media bias among voters is largely driven by Republicans. (IANS)

    This comment post will probably be deleted since this is a biased liberal media. But I’ll type it in anyway and just see. I am a black conservative and I am voting for Donald Trump. I happen to know that a whole lot of Hispanics are voting for Donald Trump also. I am in these FB groups and I see their comments how they long for America to be prosperous once again and how they came to America for the American dream of owning a nice home with a white picket fence.
    I also have these dreams.
    But lets get on to the subject at hand…
    Isn’t this the same HIllary Clinton that worked for Nixon and the very same WATERGATE old chilly Hilly was fired at. What else was she involved with Nixon that we don’t know about?
    You can also google ‘Clinton scandals and body bags’. Google Bill Clinton’s pedophile Island which Hillary also covered up. Bill Clinton used cheap woman to build a very wealthy empire. It was rumored that he bought some of these child sex slaves from the arabs also known as Islam for his pleasure and his wealthy friends to use in their private parties. And this Islamic woman Hillary is using as her sidekick must know something to have the cushy job she has. Or some of her Islamic friends are holding information ransom for her to keep this cushy job.
    I also notice a lot of commentators on some of these news comments say their words the same way with mispelling of the same words. Some libtard squats appear to have 3 to 4 ID,s on here. Replying to yourself liking your own comments in other ID form etc.
    Why do you do it? To make it look like this stupid liberal news media has more support than they have? Brainwashers are using their brainwashed dimtards to brainwash others.
    Thats about as bad as Obama paying the same actors who rioted in 2 different cities. And you can even google the Sandy Hook school shooting hoaxes where some of these actors appeared in other school shootings in other cities. Who are the fake actors who pretended to be parents? Where are the bodies buried? Why were certain honest reporters kept away from close-up photos and comments? There are Sandy Hook FB groups you can go to where a lot of questions are presented that make sense. There is no limit the libtard democrat Islamic terrorists sympathizers would not go to steal America’s guns.
    Think people think. Dont let the libtard tell you how to think. Dont be afraid of being called a conspiracy theorist or a tin foil hat wearer. You have liberal democrat voters that are getting doped up on marijuana coke and pills so that they cannot do anything but vote democrat. They are unable to search for the truth. The Liberal Democrats are a criminal organization and are striving to cheat America out of it’s freedoms to thrive and survive the way God wants them to.

Deadpool Actor Karan Feels the Present Time Best to Work in the US

Karan feels things would have been different if "The Simpsons" was made in recent times.

Karan Soni finds the Apu controversy “cool”. The “Deadpool” actor of Indian origin says it is a great time for people of colour in Hollywood, but he cannot say the same for the entire US, especially under Donald Trump’s presidency.

“I think it is a great time (to be people of colour) in the entertainment industry. In America in general because of Trump, I don’t know. I am very lucky to live in Los Angeles, which is a diverse place where it is great to be different,” Karan told IANS in an interview over phone from Los Angeles.

“In America in general…I know there are a lot of parts where may be it is not that great to be brown or black. So, it is good specifically in Hollywood and in general it depends where you are in America and based on who voted for whom,” he added.

Karan, who got noticed as Deadpool’s Indian cab driver Dopinder in the first part, feels the Apu controversy — which emerged as Hank Azaria voiced Apu, a character from “The Simpsons” — will initiate a positive change. Apu had to grapple with the troubling stereotype of a convenience store clerk with an exaggerated, fake Indian accent since the show’s inception.

“The controversy over the character is completely justified simply because in 2018 it is weird to have a white actor doing an Indian accent on a TV show. There are so many Indian actors who can do that part and do it better.”

He doesn’t blame the makers of the series.

“It has been on for 20-plus season. Back then I don’t know if they tried to look for Indian actors for that part or they didn’t even try.

“In a weird way, I think it is a positive controversy because people don’t want a white actor doing an Indian accent or playing an Indian character in 2018. People are upset because they want to see actors from that ethnicity to play that part instead of giving it to someone who is not.”

Karan feels things would have been different if “The Simpsons” was made in recent times.

“If the show was made this year and there was an Indian or Asian character, they would not give it to a white actor. It is cool that the controversy happened.”

Nevertheless, he is proud that the “Deadpool” makers understood the importance of having a diverse cast.

The film tells the story of an adult superhero with a twisted sense of humour. Karan’s Dopinder took relationship advice from Deadpool. His role was short, but it didn’t go unnoticed.

Based on Marvel Comics’ most unconventional anti-hero, “Deadpool” is the original story of a former Special Forces operative who turns into a mercenary and is now out to seek revenge against the man who nearly destroyed his life.

The Ryan Reynolds-starrer, brought to India by Fox Star India, released on Friday.

The "Deadpool" actor of Indian origin says it is a great time for people of colour in Hollywood, but he cannot say the same for the entire US, especially under Donald Trump's presidency.

“The makers always wanted the movie to be diverse because ‘Deadpool’ movie takes place in X-Men universe. The mutants are kind of outcast, the minorities as compared to human race. They recognised it well that the cast needs to be diverse.”

In the second part, Dopinder is doing more than just driving Deadpool around. He has joined his army and is seen doing some action too.

There was a Bollywood twist in “Deadpool” in 2016 with songs like “Mera joota hai Japani” featuring in the opening credit, and “Tumse achha kaun hai” also finding a place in the narrative. But Karan says there are “fewer Indian references” in the second chapter.

After expressing his view on increasing diversity in the West, Karan, born and brought up in Delhi, hopes to see an Indian superhero crossing boundaries and entering Hollywood “in his lifetime”.

“If we look at ‘Black Panther’, it did so well. There were a bunch of supporting black characters in the movies for years and then it took a long time, but finally they did make that.

“I am just happy to be part of the initial steps. I hope in my lifetime we will get to see an Indian superhero for sure,” said Karan, who studied at the University of South California, and soon found a way into showbiz.

He has featured in projects like “Safety Not Guaranteed”, “The Neighbors”, “Goosebumps” and “Ghostbusters”. What’s next?

“From being in ‘Deadpool’ to then going to be an Angel with ‘Harry Potter’ star Daniel Radcliffe in ‘Miracle Workers’ to then getting stuck in a cage with Sharon Stone in ‘Corporate Animals’ — there are different kinds of things.” (BollywoodCountry)
