From a just-out Gallup poll:
“In general, how much trust and confidence do you have in the mass media — such as newspapers, T.V. and radio — when it comes to reporting the news fully, accurately, and fairly — a great deal, a fair amount, not very much, or none at all?”
Total national sample, portion saying
- “A great deal” or “a fair amount”: 40.
- “Not very much/None at all:” 60
That’s a new record high for distrust in media, since Gallup started asking the question in 2001.
- Among Democrats, portion saying “”a great deal” or “a fair amount:” 58
- Among independents: 31
- Among Republicans: 26
