Americans’ Trust in Mass Media Has Sunk to a New Low

According to a new Gallup poll, it appears the mainstream media’s blatant attempts, during this election campaign, to keep negative reports about Hillary Clinton from the American people is destroying their credibility.

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% saying they have a great deal or fair amount of trust in the media. This is down eight percentage points from last year.

And while older Americans have in the past been more inclined than younger Americans to trust the media, this poll shows “trust has declined among both age groups this year.”
