A new Gallup poll has revealed that Americans have a consistent lack of trust in media, with more than three-quarters of the public not saying they had much confidence in newspapers or television news.
Only 21% of respondents said they had “a great deal” or “quite a lot” of confidence in newspapers, while only 16% of respondents reported the same of television news. Only Congress fared worse, garnering just 12%.
The police are the only institution which saw American confidence in them grow (+3%) from 2020 to 2021, per Gallup, w/ the poll saying the police (51%), military (69%), & small business (70%) are the only institutions garnering majority confidence in themhttps://t.co/mtcglIGVt0 pic.twitter.com/qIqEta8q62
