Through a survey, the mistrust of the media is the highest it has been in a long time.
The only group that retains a high level of trust is among declared Democrats





Some key findings:
The press led institutions for which the public has the lowest confidence.
Of all demographic groups, only Democrats expressed a positive confidence in the press.
40 percent get their news from TV.
40 percent get their news from online and social media sources.
6 percent get their news from newspapers and magazines.
60 percent believe that sources pay reporters.
41 percent are unlikely to believe stories filled with anonymous sources.
42 percent of Democrats believe the media isn’t biased.
Just 10 percent of Republicans said the same.

ALL media REEKS of propaganda and brainwashing.

It's been obvious for quite some time, although since the rise of Trump and all the new money thats been flowing into streaming services like Netlix and Hulu, it's just blatant at this point.

And deservedly so.
Jussie anyone?

I check here before I give any credibility to any report or video. As much as people claim ats is too political, it is still one of the quickest and most thorough vetting sites.

Check out GAB's Dissenter! It is a browser plugin that enables you to comment on ANY article on the internet. The lamestream media are losing their snip over it! They can no longer control the narrative.

Washington Examiner and CJR Poll, Mistrust of the media worse than Congress


I think I understand now. If a poll favors the right wing ideology, it's a legitimate poll. Otherwise it's "fake news"....

Six of the major news stories of 2019 have all turned out to be 'fake.'
I'm not sure that's a right wing issue.

It's ONLY just March, and we have had:
2019 'FAKE NEWS'

1. PBS Reported that Trump Jr. conflicted with Cohen's reports that Trump had business in Russia.
There were two distinct conversations over the course of five years and they reported on the wrong one.

2. Paul Manafort visited Assange in the Embassy in secret.

3. Trump told Cohen to lie

4. Covington Kids surround Native elder, etc.

5. Jazmine Barnes was shot by a white man. Shaun King even Tweeted a name and face of an innocent man.

6. Jussie Smollet attacked by Trump Country white men

7. Facebook allowed ads prior to the Nigerian Election.

8. Every Rotton Tomatoes score

You know, I don’t know, maybe you know. You know, everybody knows that MSM is lying, except Fox News.
Fox News is so beautiful everything else is all a phony deal, folks.
