Americans’ Trust in Mass Media Sinks to New Low

October 3, 2016

clinton-stairs-memWe don’t trust the mass media.  This report from Gallop confirms my experience.  I’m part of the new media.  I report on civilian self-defense for one simple reason.  The mainstream media ignores those stories.  The media would have us believe the government is our protector and first responder.  I don’t believe that.  Neither do you.

The media’s failure to report the news without spin has finally run its course.  Public trust in the mass media fell to the lowest level ever recorded.  It fell for republicans, for democrats, and for independents.  Trust in mass media fell for young and old.  More than three times as many of us trust mass media “not at all” compared to the few who trust it “a great deal”.

“Americans’ trust and confidence in the mass media “to report the news fully, accurately and fairly” has dropped to its lowest level in Gallup polling history, with 32% saying they have a great deal or fair amount of trust in the media. This is down eight percentage points from last year.”
