Poll: 72% Say Nooze Media Tells Lies

Only AI can save us from a world of fakes (a world AI is also creating) |  InsiderPro

Here’s a little something I missed when it came out three years ago: an Axios poll found that 72% of Americans believed the news media “report news they know to be fake, false, or purposely misleading” (https://thehill.com/homenews/media/394352-poll-72-percent-say-traditional-outlets-report-news-they-know-to-be-fake-false).

And the nooze has labored on it ever since.

In 1976 a Gallup poll found trust in the news media at 74%.

By 2016 that figure had slipped to 32%.

In the 2018 poll, even 53% of Democrats conceded that the nooze lies at least “sometimes.”

Great Scott, what would that figure be today? Does anyone who’s not a solid stone-head liberal have any trust in our nooze media–any at all?

Need it be said that it’s really very bad for the public not to have reliable information about what’s going on? But that’s precisely what we don’t have now.

It’s because our (LOL) “journalistic” establishment has thrown in all the way with Far Left Crazy, and hopes to be rich and powerful in a “transformed” America.

I was a newsman once. Today’s so-called journalism makes me ashamed to admit it.

  1. It’s truly shameful, but I blame the consumers of news as much as I blame the media. If people would quit consuming their product, the media would be out of business.

  2. The trouble is that many people don’t know there’s any other way of finding out what’s going on around them. The MSM may be a pack of liars, but the only alternative is oblivion if you don’t know where to get genuine news. And you can’t search for something you don’t know exists. I myself had no idea there was a conservative or at least a fairly impartial source of news until one of my cousins sent me a copy of a column he thought would interest me, and I went to read more material from the source of the column, a conservative outlet … which led me to other sources … which opened up a whole new world for me. But I wouldn’t have gone to look for these sources, because I didn’t know there were any such things in existence. This was the same cousin, by the way, who introduced me to the works of Thomas Sowell, whom I also, having been raised as a leftist, had never heard of.
