A new poll by the Associated Press finds that few Americans do not trust the media and most also think the media is working on purpose to divide America.
Per the AP:
Nearly three-quarters of U.S. adults say the news media is increasing political polarization in this country, and just under half say they have little to no trust in the media’s ability to report the news fairly and accurately, according to a new survey from The Associated Press-NORC Center for Public Affairs Research and Robert F. Kennedy Human Rights.
The poll, released before World Press Freedom Day on Wednesday, shows Americans have significant concerns about misinformation — and the role played by the media itself along with politicians and social media companies in spreading it — but that many are also concerned about growing threats to journalists’ safety.
“The news riles people up,” said 53-year-old Barbara Jordan, a Democrat from Hutchinson, Kansas. Jordan said she now does her own online research instead of going by what she sees on the TV news. “You’re better off Googling something and learning about it. I trust the internet more than I do the TV.”
People respect car salesmen now more than the media.
This really isn’t a surprise at all. But it is good to see people finally waking up to the fact that “the media” is not interested in facts, truth, or reality.
“The media” is interested in only once thing. Since the 1950s, the media has only been interested in promulgating leftism. And they will lie about anything and everything with that specific goal in mind.
