Trust In News Media Collapses To Historic Low

Trust in news media by the American people has completely collapsed and it’s very easy to see why.

Just think of all the times the media has outright lied in recent years. The Russia collusion hoax, the Covington kids, Trump telling people to drink bleach, COVID, Trump putting bounties on American soldiers, and on and on and on.

The media has been working overtime for years to deserve this distrust.

Axios reports:

Trust in news collapses to historic low

Americans’ confidence in newspapers and television news has plummeted to an all-time low, according to the latest annual Gallup survey of trust in U.S. institutions.

Why it matters: The erosion of trust in media is one of the most significant signs of deepening polarization in America.

– Political party affiliation has become the primary driver of opinions about the media’s trustworthiness, as Gallup has noted.

– A 2021 poll from Pew Research Center found that Republicans are far less likely to trust media sources that are considered “mainstream.”

Details: Television news is today considered the second-least trusted institution in the country, following Congress, according to the poll.

– While other institutions have also experienced precipitous declines, including banks and the medical system, others — like small business and the military — have held steady over the past few decades.

Is anyone really surprised by this?

The media did this to themselves. They don’t deserve the people’s trust.
