Trust in Media
From the looks of this latest Harris Poll the culture is ripe for dependable bloggers:
American attitudes toward the press, radio and television were much more negative than European attitudes. Specifically:
– A 62 to 22 percent (almost 3-to-1) majority of Americans did not trust “the press”; Europeans were split 47 to 46 percent.
– A modest 43 to 33 percent plurality of Americans were inclined to trust the radio; a larger than 2-to-1 majority (62% to 29%) of Europeans did so.
– A substantial 58 to 22 percent majority of Americans did not trust television; a 54 to 39 percent majority of Europeans did trust TV.
