1000 Americans were recently polled about civility in America, and were asked to identify what was the most uncivil thing in this country.
#1 was pop culture (75%), followed closely by the media (74%) and the government (73%). That pretty much covers it, doesn't it?
When they broke it down further, the big losers were Republicans in Congress (60%), Tea Party Supporters (60%), Democrats in Congress (56%) and blogs (55%).
The Cable News networks also didn't fare so well. Fox News (51%), MSNBC (37%), and CNN (32%) all got quite a few votes.
And what was ranked the lowest on the uncivil meter? Conversation at the dinner table (7%).
