Remember this Survey About the Media.

Yesterday, this happened. I wanted to post this here. It’s a list of (mostly) yes, no, no opinion or other type questions. It turns out that this is largely a riff on an earlier survey that the Trump campaign released during the election cycle. These questions are interesting on several levels. They use bias in order to uncover a perception of bias.

I put it here because it’s creepy. Some of these questions are topics in themselves to write about.
