More And More Americans Don’t Trust Their Nightly News
Most of us try to catch some form of nightly news to see if the world is still spinning, but do we really believe what we hear and see from our favorite news anchors or local newspaper? Find out after the jump.
The answer is no. Our confidence in television news is at an all time low. Only 21% of adults expressed a great deal of confidence in nightly news broadcasts, down from last year’s 27%.
It seems that we don’t trust what we read in newspapers either. Only 25% of Americans say that they believe what they read in their local paper, down from 28% last year.
No one is really sure what is causing this lack of trust in our news outlets, but it seems that their negativity causes our negativity.
Where do you find your news? Do you watch a local television station, or do you read the paper? Do you have a favorite internet source for your news? How much of what you read and hear do you believe?
