Have you ever offered your opinion on an issue only to be told that your opinion is offensive? A recent poll from the Cato Institute shows that 71% of Americans believe political correctness has silenced important discussions society needs to have.
Simply put, Americans are afraid to voice their opinions.
According to the poll, liberals are more likely than conservatives to find speech offensive. There is no doubt the media has contributed to groupthink and political correctness. In fact, a mere 7% of reporters identify as Republican.
It's no wonder that Americans are afraid to voice their opinion -- an unfriendly and biased media might report them as offensive.
