Confidence in Television News Drops By Half in 20 Years
Americans’ confidence in television news is at a new low by one percentage point, with 21% of adults expressing a great deal or quite a lot of confidence in it. This marks a decline from 27% last year and from 46% when Gallup started tracking confidence in television news in 1993.
For some reason I find this pretty surprising. I would have thought the number of people who have confidence in our so-called news would be higher. So, good on us for our skepticism. The, again, so-called news outlets deserve it with their lazy, if it leads it bleeds reporting.
