Poll: Most don't trust ABC, CBS, NBC, NYT, WaPo, LAT
Washington Examiner ^ | November 7, 2017 | Paul Bedard

More voters than not find the Big Three network newscasts and the nation’s three largest liberal newspapers "untrustworthy," continuing a trend that started long before President Trump hit the scene, but one that has escalated since he moved into the White House.

The latest Zogby Poll found that 48 percent believe the media biggies - CBS, ABC, NBC, New York Times, Los Angeles Times, Washington Post - are untrustworthy while 45 percent said they could trust them. The rest were unsure.

[Snip]

Trump voters are the most distrusting of the top six news outlets, but there are many other differences, Zogby found:

As for Trump voters, "The divide was also even more prevalent," said the survey.

“Poll: Most don’t trust ABC, CBS, NBC, NYT, WaPo, LAT”

AND they and the RAT-Commies have totally underestimated us — the deplorables. We are now the “Silent Majority”. See the 2016 election. MAGA!

For each they should should show a level of trust from ABSOLUTE to ALMOST ALWAYS to SOMETIMES to RARELY to NEVER

Those responding ALWAYS to WP, NYT,LAT, BG, CNN, CBS, NBC are admitting a willingness to accept fraud, hoaxes, and lies as news. They’ve all been caught faking it.

The press has paid a high price for getting stories from democrats who hire thugs who pay for stories.

It's National Enquirer all over with everyone pretending reporters are 'finding' stories. The New York Times doesn't 'find' they're 'fed'... all the rest of the lemming follow them off the cliff.

Fools. They've thrown away an industry.

Democrats trust the Media because the Media is Democrats.

“The latest Zogby Poll found that 48 percent believe the media biggies - CBS, ABC, NBC, New York Times, Los Angeles Times, Washington Post - are untrustworthy”

...until you (or I or Trump) tell them a specific article/report is BS. Their response, mostly, is “Who the hell are you to say”.

In other words, they may say and believe that they don’t trust the media, but they are still controlled by the media, they just don’t even know it.

Example: Two women and a dog claimed to be lost at sea for 5 months and come off the boat looking perfectly healthy, with freshly pressed clothes. It took 21 COMMENTS on one of the threads here (at FR) to finally say something like “I’m not sure if I believe them”. The prior 20 took the media at face value, even though the media never asked them to prove anything or questioned their condition. Needless to say, now the story is coming apart.

cnn deliberately and intentionally altered a video to make it appear as if Trump had tried to kill poor, innocent fish.

I find it painful to read thru leftie Democratic rags like The Pittsburgh Post Gazette.

I also find it painful to scroll thru the Facebook feeds of the local Pittsburgh affiliates of the Big 3 national news networks.

"What's true is the partisan element the mainstream media has taken on in recent years, and that's reflected in our polling data and their bottom line."
