A strong majority of the American people do not trust the media anymore.
Is it really much of a mystery how we arrived here? For the last four years, the media did everything they could to destroy Trump and we all watched it happen in real time.
Now that Biden is in office, they want to pretend it never happened. They play nice with Biden and everyone connected to him and they think no one notices this.
Shocker: Trust in Media Reaches All Time Low
The liberal media has always been untrustworthy, but they really shot their credibility last year in their not-so-subtle support of the effort to remove President Trump from office. As a result, a new poll shows for the first time ever a majority of Americans no longer trust the media.
Axios reported data from Edelman’s annual trust barometer showing fewer than half of Americans trust traditional media. Trust drops to just 27 percent in the case of social media.
According to Axios, 56 percent of Americans agree with the statement that “Journalists and reporters are purposely trying to mislead people by saying things they know are false or gross exaggerations.”
Some 58 percent agree that “most news organizations are more concerned with supporting an ideology or political position than with informing the public.” And when Edelman re-polled Americans following the November election, the numbers deteriorated further, with just 57 percent of Democrats and 18 percent of Republicans saying they trust the media.
The findings may surprise liberal activists masquerading as journalists at CNN, but should surprise no one who paid attention to how the media behaved last year.
The media did this to themselves. This was entirely self-inflicted.

They obviously have a political agenda, and now everyone knows it.
Their credibility is shot.
