Americans' Confidence in Television News Drops to New Low
Liberals' and moderates' views are now similar to conservatives'
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.
The really interesting part here is that liberals and moderates trust the media less than conservatives, even though the mainstream media is heavily biased to the left. The title doesn't indicate it, but trust in newspapers is also covered.
