Gallup: distrust in media hits new high

by NW Spotlight

Gallup is reporting that based on a recent survey, 60% of Americans now say they have little or no trust in the mass media, a new high. The same survey found that fewer people are following political news this election than in previous elections.

Echoing the Gallup survey results, Brent Bozell complained Sunday night that the bias by omission in the liberal media has “gotten to ridiculous heights,” adding “News stories that are news to everyone are being blotted out by the news media if it goes against the narrative of an Obama reelection. I’ve never seen anything like it before.”

Brent Bozell is the founder and President of the Media Research Center, the largest media watchdog organization in America. The Media Research Center states that it holds “the liberal media accountable for shamelessly advancing a left-wing agenda, distorting the truth, and vilifying the conservative movement.”

In their summary, Gallup notes that “there is an opportunity for others outside the ‘mass media’ to serve as information sources that Americans do trust.”
