WASHINGTON (AFP) – Public trust in the US media is eroding and increasing numbers of Americans believe news coverage is inaccurate and biased, according to a study released on Monday.
Just 29 percent of the 1,506 adults surveyed by the Pew Research Center for the People and the Press between July 22-26 said news organizations generally get the facts straight.
Sixty-three percent said news stories are often inaccurate, up from 34 percent in a 1985 study, Pew said.
Sixty percent of those polled said the press is biased, up from 45 percent in 1985. Just 26 percent in the latest survey said that news organizations are careful their reporting is not politically biased.

I don't know who to listen to...which is kinda why I listen to them all....I think that's how many have seen that there is something wrong. We get bits and pieces of the truth from all angles and have to form our own opinions on what the truth is....and then we have to argue with those who buy into all of the nonsense.
I just wish people would realize every single personality in the news media is pretty much a millionare...with lots of interests in the stock market and OTHER corporations. Many of them are connected...even to those who seem to not be.
And yes people...Beck is CORPORATE OWNED. He may rail against certain corporations...GE mainly.....but he will say nothing about the huge corporate stranglehold that Roger Murdoch has on a large portion of ALL media. He never talks about HALLIBURTON...nor does he ever talk against NAFTA. He never speaks against the war...he is pro PATRIOT ACT which any person who is for the Constitution should be opposed to. Nor does he ever talk about our debt being where it is because of IRAQ.
Beck is a multi millionare....Hannity is worth 200 million...Limbaugh is worth 400 million. Do people honestly believe that they hold your interests at heart in their opinions? Beck will pass Hannity soon in worth btw. Who is cutting the checks?
It stinks really....when you watch tv and you want to believe that you are getting the truth...but your better judgement tells you that you are not.
"You can't handle the truth!"
Who knows...maybe we can't......
