People Do Not Trust The News They See On Television

CBS Orlando

When people are watching news on the T.V., are they really trusting the information that they are getting?

A new study says most people don’t, and even more are starting to agree.

Only 21% of adults expressed a great deal or quite a lot of confidence in it. That’s a decline from 27% last year and from 46% when Gallup started tracking confidence in television news in 1993.

The 25% of adults who have a great deal or quite a lot of confidence in newspapers is down from 28% last year. Confidence in newspapers is now half of what it was at its peak of 51% in 1979.

It’s not clear why Americans gave up on television news this year. Negativity usually reflects the fact that Americans have grown more negative about the media in recent years.
