Media Bias perceived of as bigger problem than donations

Given that the power of the media becomes more important as campaign donations become more regulated, this finding seems of importance.

Voters agree that big money talks in politics but apparently not as loudly as big media.
Fifty-five percent (55%) of U.S. voters continue to think that media bias is a bigger problem in politics today than big campaign contributions, identical to the finding in August 2008.
Thirty-two percent (32%) say big contributions are the bigger problem, but that’s down four points from the previous survey. Thirteen percent (13%) more are not sure.
Thirty-eight percent (38%) of voters say they are more likely to contribute time or money to a political campaign this year compared to previous election years. . . .
