Public's Distrust of Media Reaches All-Time High

News

"In general, how much trust and confidence do you have in the mass media -- such as newspapers, TV and radio -- when it comes to reporting the news fully, accurately and fairly?"

Not a whole lot, according to Gallup's latest public opinion survey which found a record 57 percent of Americans now they have little or no trust in the news media.

According to Gallup, nearly half (48%) of Americans say today's news media is "too liberal," while only 15 percent report that it's "too conservative."

Those who identify themselves as Democrats and liberals remain far more likely than other political and ideological groups to trust the media and to perceive no bias.
