Trust In Media Returns to All-Time Low

Even these numbers are a lie. We all know the numbers are MUCH lower than this.

Breitbart – by John Nolte

Per Gallup, after a short-term bump to 44% last year, trust in the media to report  “the news fully, accurately, and fairly” has plummeted back to an all-time low of 40%.   

With fits and starts, the downward trend since Gallup began taking the poll in 1997 is obvious. It’s been 9 years since the media enjoyed the trust of 50%. Back in 1999, it was 55%.

There’s just no question that the media has had another awful year. One of 2014’s biggest stories, the shooting of Michael Brown by a Ferguson police officer, was yet another media debacle on the scale of the George Zimmerman trial. Even a majority of black St. Louis residents believe the race-baiting media made things worse.

Now we have the NFL scandal, which is a legitimate story, but the sanctimonious moral preening throughout the elite media has been nauseating to watch.

  1. To the alternative news consumers trust of MSM is way lower, maybe “0”.

    But Uncle Bunky and Aunt Martha still think the MSM is on the up and up. Try to wake them up and you’re an unpatriotic conspiracy kook. That’s why democracy doesn’t work. Too many dunb people.
