    Trust in mainstream media remains at all time low

    Public trust in mainstream media remains near all-time low, says new Gallup poll





    Creeping up just slightly over last year's figures, the percentage of Americans who say they have a "great deal" or "fair amount" of trust in the mainstream media to report full, accurate, and balanced news is now teetering around 44 percent, according to a recent Gallup poll.

    Last October, we reported that only 43 percent of Americans surveyed put any sort of stock in the mass media to report news honestly and fairly, which at the time represented the lowest level of trust in the media since 1973 (http://www.naturalnews.com/029931_d...).


    When accounting for a reasonable margin of error, however, both figures can be considered roughly equal, as they represent widespread distrust among Americans of the mainstream news that is constantly peddled to them as truth.

    On the flip side, 55 percent of respondents said they have little or no trust at all in the legitimacy of mass media. Depending on their political affiliations, surveyed individuals provided different reasons for not trusting the media, including beliefs that it is "too liberal" or "too conservative," but many simply do not trust it as accurate.

    Based on the same survey, Gallup found that 47 percent of people think the media is "too liberal," while only 13 percent think it is "too conservative." Thirty-six percent said they think the news media is "just about right," and these individuals are likely also the same ones who hold a fair amount or great deal of trust in said media.

    It really is not a surprise that Americans are losing trust in their once-cherished media staples. After all, it is now becoming common knowledge that "The Big Six" -- General Electric, Walt Disney, News Corp, Time Warner, Viacom, and CBS -- own a dominant share of the media today.

    It is for the 55 percent of Americans who now see through the lies of the mainstream media that we do what we do here at NaturalNews. By presenting news that never gets reported, as well as a unique perspective on the news that does, those who are "awake" can continue to become informed and educated in the truth. And eventually, this will hopefully spread to the other 45 percent as well.
