Distrust of mainstream media hits record high

September 21, 2012

Americans disgust with the mainstream media has reached new highs, with almost two-thirds of Americans, an all-time high according to Gallup, distrust the liberal major media outlets.

Also, the number of Americans with fair or stronger confidence in the MSM has also reached new lows.

Gee, we wonder why?

And they wonder why their viewership (and by extension their ad revenue) is off so sharply in recent years.

WASHINGTON, D.C. (Gallup) — Americans’ distrust in the media hit a new high this year, with 60% saying they have little or no trust in the mass media to report the news fully, accurately, and fairly. Distrust is up from the past few years, when Americans were already more negative about the media than they had been in years prior to 2004.

UPDATE:

Want two prime examples why Americans are fed up with the mainstream media?

Here are two from just the LA Times when it comes to civil right:

Crime is down — and so is gun ownership

LA Times makes believe that gun ownership is down, despite month after month of new records being set on gun sales.

Does ‘Innocence of Muslims’ meet the free-speech test?

LA Times publishes a screed by a freedom-hating leftist suggesting that we should limit civil rights where someone, somewhere might become “incited” to violence as a result of your speech.  The same contributor goes on to equate Christians with the Muslims rioting over YouTube movies and anything else they deem blasphemous to their prophet moe.
