A new poll shows public trust in legacy media is at an all-time low.
During a recent episode of his new late night show, Greg Gutfeld ripped the media and explained why their polling numbers are so low.
He featured a clip from MSNBC where a contributor was warning that Trump supporters were going to do something on the same level as 9/11.

Gutfeld on the Latest Poll: Media ‘Slightly More Popular Than Chlamydia’
At the top of Thursday’s top rated Gutfeld! on Fox News, host Greg Gutfeld had a little fun with the latest Gallup poll on confidence in the press. The numbers weren’t good.
GUTFELD: Twenty-one percent of respondents said they had a great deal of confidence in newspapers, which of course they get from reading [the comic strip] “Cathy.” It was worse for T.V. news at 16 percent which was only slightly less hated than Congress at 12 percent.
But that’s like being told you’re only slightly more popular than chlamydia. This after a Reuters survey show the U.S. media ranked last among 46 countries when it comes to public trust. We even ranked behind Canada, and they don’t even have electricity. So, do you think in industry witnessing a collapse in their trust might try to figure out why? But not the media, because their profit model is always pointing fingers.
So, it’s impossible for them to implicate themselves. So, if the public is sick of their lies, well, then that’s the public’s fault. So, they just assumed they can smear Americans and push policies meant to punish them, it will still be here for them later. Now they’re creating a narrative that a domestic 9/11 is just around the corner.

The media did this to themselves.
No surprise here
Only 21% of respondents said they had "a great deal" or "quite a lot" of confidence in newspapers, while only 16% of respondents reported the same of television news. Only Congress fared worse, garnering just 12%.

Over the last four years, the media destroyed their own credibility.
