Americans’ Trust in News Media Plummets: Poll
Confidence in the US news media is at an all-time low, a Gallup survey revealed Wednesday, with most Americans complaining the media is too conservative or too liberal.
The survey showed just 40 percent of respondents felt confident in the news media’s ability to report “fully, accurately, and fairly,” matching results of the 2012 questionnaire.
The latest poll shows bias is a key issue for Americans and the news media.
Some 44 percent said the media sector as a whole was “too liberal,” a slight decline from the 48 percent peak in 2010.
