Posted on 09/21/2012 7:14:39 PM PDT by Beave Meister
Americans' distrust in the media hit a new high this year, with 60% saying they have little or no trust in the mass media to report the news fully, accurately, and fairly. Distrust is up from the past few years, when Americans were already more negative about the media than they had been in years prior to 2004.
The record distrust in the media, based on a survey conducted Sept. 6-9, 2012, also means that negativity toward the media is at an all-time high for a presidential election year. This reflects the continuation of a pattern in which negativity increases every election year compared with the year prior. The current gap between negative and positive views -- 20 percentage points -- is by far the highest Gallup has recorded since it began regularly asking the question in the 1990s. Trust in the media was much higher, and more positive than negative, in the years prior to 2004 -- as high as 72% when Gallup asked this question three times in the 1970s.

Let us hope so. They have become the greatest threat to the Republic. President Obama could never have been elected without their backing and coverup.
Rachel mad cow reminds me of Ed Schultz. They are both skanks.
So why do they watch it? Keep it off your TV, and let them die out.
The would have quite a bit more tenure if they could just rid of that other political party.
They put a marxist kenyan muslim foreigner who hates America with a burning passion unmatched even by bin laden’s in the White House, and some people insist that they are powerless losers. Americans do whatever Katie Couric tells them to do. Period! Look at the White House for proof.
Whatever happened to that guy who posted here... “Shortly after the 2008 elections the network newscasts will go dark. The networks will be just a few of millions of URLs competing on the worldwide web.”? Is that Nostradamus still around?
If things ever truly break down, and TSHTF, the criminal leftist media types should be the first to get booted from the country.
Geez...could it be because they do things like hide the 0bama/Khalidi tape but show, non-stop, the selectively edited Romney 47% tape?
The Liberal Agenda Media, (LAM), clearly has an agenda. What is so interesting is their knee-jerk, reflexive response to defend their guy, Obama, whenever Romney puts Obama on the defensive.
IMHO, the LAM knows the hot-button weak positions that Obama has, and jump in quickly to defend arrogant Obama.
The LAM positions in public remind me of the characters in the movie Ship of Fools. They have no idea of their impending future - - - NONE!
If it weren’t for the brain dead progressives, the approval rate would have never even reached 40%.
New media networks like Glenn Beck’s The Blaze will finish them off...unless or until the new total internet control laws kick in, giving obama the internet kill switch.
I’m wondering why? I just can’t put my finger on the reason.... Almost.... Almost..... Nope, wait, oh yeah. Totally in the bag for Bambi and all rat causes! That’s why!
Your analysis is very kind, generous and very lenient...
... for these pravda-types.
Perhaps they will be scrambling for the border on their own...
...No boots required....
Oh yeah.... and updating their resume for other lines of work.
Enjoy your weekend
