GALLUP: PUBLIC DISTRUST OF MEDIA WAY UP

According to Gallup, the public’s distrust in the “news” media is at an all time high. Geez … Why would that be? Perhaps it’s related to their habit of lying to us all the time. Ya think? So now, nearly two-thirds of the public just doesn’t believe what they say:

Americans’ distrust in the media hit a new high this year, with 60% saying they have little or no trust in the mass media to report the news fully, accurately, and fairly.

Here’s how the distrust breaks down by party identification:

You’ll note that both independents and Republicans trust the media the least, while a majority of Democrats still believe the propaganda. That, in a way, is the definition of a Democrat—-Someone dumb enough to believe what they are told by the MSM.
