Distrust in mainstream media hits record high

CIA owns the media

A new Gallup poll released on Friday found that U.S. distrust in the media hit a record high.

The results are based off a survey distributed between Sept. 6-9, 2012. The results were consistent with years past, as distrust in the media typically increases during election years from the year before. However, this year’s distrust was the highest since Gallup started recording results to this question in the 1990s.

When asked “how much trust and confidence” respondents had when it came to the media “fully, accurately, and fairly” reporting the news, 60 percent of respondents said they do not trust the mass media “very much/at all.” There is a 20 percent difference between negative and positive views of the media, with only 40 percent of respondents saying they trust the mass media a “great deal/fair amount.”

According to Gallup, “Trust in the media was much higher, and more positive than negative, in the years prior to 2004 — as high as 72% when Gallup asked this question three times in the 1970s.”

The results are also consistent with a recent poll conducted by Public Policy Polling for Daily Kos and the SEIU. Regardless of political leanings, 78 percent of survey respondents said they had an unfavorable view of the political press.

  1. Read 1984. Offical big media desserves to die. Some examples ? Time Magazine. Fox TV. CNN. BBC. NY Times, Wall Street Journal, Financial Times and many many others. Look at their ratings and the copies they sell. THEY ARE DYING ! And they deserve to die because they are corrupt, decadent, degenerate and parasites. And they will die whatever happens. Because of tehcnology and because today people have choices.

  2. I think it’s more of a trendy position of people to distrust the media. For example, we’ve had the case of Kony 2012, which MASSES of people completely fell for. They also vote for option A (reps) or B (dems), while these are the same s*** that stinks differently.
    However, this is a good prospect for true Democracy, which I haven’t seen in action yet.
