STUDY: Majority Of Americans Don’t Trust Journalists & The News Media


A new Pew Research Center study revealed that there is a major disconnect between journalists and the American public when it comes to covering the most important stories, reporting news accurately, providing a voice to the underrepresented, serving as a watchdog for our elected leaders, and the connection between audience members and journalists. Ana Kasparian discusses on The Young Turks.

Per Pew, 65 percent of the nearly 12,000 journalists surveyed say the media do a solid job of “covering the most important stories of the day” and reporting news accurately. But a solid majority of the American public at large has the opposite view, with just 35 percent feeling the same way. That’s a 30-point perception gap. When asked if journalists perform well when “serving as a watchdog over elected leaders,” 52 percent of journalists agreed. But the number dropped precipitously again when the general public was asked, with less than 3 in 10 agreeing with the assessment. When asked if journalists manage and correct misinformation consistently, 43 percent of those in the industry said yes, while just 25 percent of the general public agreed." *** The largest online progressive news show in the world.
