New Report Says 65 Percent of Americans DON’T TRUST THE MEDIA
Perhaps the reason for this is that more Americans are realizing that the vast majority of people in media are liberals who use their profession to cover for Democrats and attack Republicans.
Pew: 65% of Americans Don’t Trust Media
A national survey by Pew Research Center reveals how distrustful the American public feels about the media; 65 percent say the national news media impacts the country negatively.
Among conservative Republicans and Republican leaners, a whopping 82 percent say the national news media has a negative impact.
Americans simply don’t trust the federal government—only 19 percent believe they can trust the government in Washington to do what is right, with a paltry 3 percent qualifying that statement as “just about always” and 16 percent specifying, “most of the time.”
A twenty-two-point rise has occurred among Americans saying the government needs “very major reform,” from 37 percent in 1997 to 59 percent today. 32 percent of Republicans and Republican-leaning independents feel anger toward the government; only 12 percent of Democrats and Democratic leaners agree. 25 percent of whites feel anger at the feds; 17 percent of Hispanics and 12 percent of blacks agree.
The recent CNBC debate made the media’s bias quite clear.
