Gallup: American’s Confidence in Newspapers, TV News Hits Rock Bottom

By Gary P Jackson

In the wake of the JournoList scandal where it was revealed that the nation’s top “journalists” and members of academia conspired to protect Barack Obama and smear Sarah Palin during the 2008 presidential election, it’s not surprising the nation has no confidence in the old, corrupt, “mainstream media.” This is the bunch who went out of their way to cover up Barack Obama’s entire radical past, from his ties to communism, his racist, anti-American preacher, and his terrorist buddies who tried to blow America up in the late 60’s and early 70’s.

We’ve seen how these “sick puppies” went after Sarah Palin’s newborn son Trig and what Sarah thought of all of this.

We even learned that after Sarah Palin’s speech at the Republican National Convention, where she accepted the nomination for Vice President, the media went into full on panic, and talked among it’s members at length, conspiring on the best way to destroy her!

People who have been paying attention have known for decades that the media is incredibly biased. Seasoned observers were not surprised when it was revealed that many of the biggest names in “journalism” and academia have ties to communist organizations and George Soros. (pretty much the same thing)

The latest polling from Gallup shows that across the board, the American people simply do not trust the “mainstream media“:

WASHINGTON, D.C. — Americans continue to express near-record-low confidence in newspapers and television news — with no more than 25% of Americans saying they have a “great deal” or “quite a lot” of confidence in either. These views have hardly budged since falling more than 10 percentage points from 2003-2007.

The interesting numbers are how people of different political ideologies look at the news. Only 18 percent of Conservatives have any confidence on newspapers and TV news respectively, so-called “moderates” are at 25 percent each, while liberals seem to be the most gullible with 34 percent trusting newspapers and 24 percent believing the television news.

    The poll numbers merely reflect people’s basic core values or strongly held views – which means that Conservatives, who have long been dismissed, screwed, brewed & tattooed (my late husband’s favorite expression!) by the LSM and Libtard society in general (Academe in particular), would naturally not drink at the enemy’s table – i.e., they would hardly want to read news they knew or sensed would NOT reflect their own values. Whereas the Libtards don’t need any coaxing and they’re not particularly “gullible” – they just really believe all that crapola spewed by the LSM!! The LSM is them – and they’re the LSM! They’re just reading from the same Bible!

    Well, the good news (but not to people who want to make a career in traditional journalism, of course) is that the dinosaur media will meet its expected demise not too far down the road. Oh, local papers (great for local news & gossip) will probably still hang on (although few on a daily basis), and the so-called “Big 3” of the Networks will go the way of the “Big 3” USA automakers (bec. the REAL “Big 3” automakers today are in Japan & Korea!!). Nothing is truer than “Adapt or die!” Frankly, now that I have access to the Internet and RARELY watch TV – even Fox News is less than satisfying – and only read daily newspapers on the stand in the grocery store, for some reason I’m still getting a ton of news from MANY directions and I don’t miss the old fossil media any more than I “miss” manual typewriters, stick-shift cars or slow-speed dental drills!!
