CORPORATE MEDIA: “American Trust in Media Hits All Time Low” / Secular Talk / Kyle Kulinski ☮

Trust in the media has reached another all-time low, according to a Gallup study.

“Americans’ trust and confidence in the mass media ‘to report the news fully, accurately and fairly’ has dropped to its lowest level in Gallup polling history, with 32 percent saying they have a great deal or fair amount of trust in the media,” Gallup analyst Art Swift said.

According to the most recent polling data, 65 percent of the public says that the corporate-controlled media has a negative effect on America, and 60 percent say that they don’t trust the media.

And here’s why – Americans now understand that the media doesn’t have their best interests in mind. They know that programming decisions are based on ad revenues, not about the news. If a story can’t sell ad time – or if it shows an advertiser in a negative light – it will never make it onto the air.
