Americans’ Confidence in Television News

Gallup has a new poll showing that American’s confidence in television news is at an all time low. However, they can’t quite put their finger on why that might be so:

It is not clear precisely why Americans soured so much on television news this year compared with last. Americans’ negativity likely reflects the continuation of a broader trend that appeared to enjoy only a brief respite last year. Americans have grown more negative about the media in recent years, as they have about many other U.S. institutions and the direction of the country in general.

FJP — We’ll hazard a guess: US television news is positively craptastic.

That’s because they feed us lies.

    All the more reason to get your news from NPR, and print outlets. Television news is for maroons.
