In a survey from the American Press Institute and The Associated Press-NORC Center for Public Affairs Research, a whopping 83 percent of respondents said they were concerned the media would "report inaccurate information or disinformation" in their 2024 election coverage.

Pollsters found that 72 percent are worried media will rely on artificial intelligence to generate stories.
