CNN is a propaganda machine, and so are the newsrooms that produce it.
The problem, according to a new study from Harvard’s Kennedy School, is that the network’s reporting often lacks context, often obscures key facts and biases opinion.
The study, published Wednesday, found that CNN is biased against Republicans, against President Donald Trump and against conservatives.
As a result, CNN has become a “perpetual source of misinformation and disinformation about the president, Republicans, and the political system in general,” the authors wrote.
CNN’s bias against Republicans has become more pronounced over the past three decades.
In the 1960s, the network was among the most accurate in the country, averaging a 9.4 rating.
But by the early 1980s, it was among a handful of networks that were “not only among the worst in the nation, but among the least reliable in the world,” the study found.
A CNN spokeswoman declined to comment on the study.CNN’s ratings also have plummeted, from an average of 3.7 in the mid-1990s to 2.7 last year.
This year, the ratings for CNN are the lowest in 10 years.
The network’s average rating was 6.3 in 2014.
A new CNN poll found that a majority of Americans believe the network is biased.
The poll found 53 percent believe CNN is “biased” against the Trump administration, down from 55 percent in the 2016 election.
More: The poll was conducted by phone from Feb. 15 to March 4, 2017 among 1,200 adults nationwide and has a margin of error of plus or minus 2.8 percentage points.
The poll also found that 43 percent of Americans say the network has too many people reporting on it, while 46 percent say the program does not have enough people reporting it.
