Gallup Shows 25% of Americans Trust Media

Gallup continues to show the growing disdain Americans demonstrate toward the MSM:
No matter the cause, it is clear the media as a whole are not gaining new fans as they struggle to serve and compete with growing demand for online news, social media, and mobile platforms. The Pew Project for Excellence in Journalism's annual report on the State of the News Media, released in March, found for a third straight year, only digital and cable news sources growing in popularity, while network news, local news, and newspaper audiences shrink. These findings align with a similar 2008 Gallup poll that found cable and Internet news sources growing in popularity while all others held steady or declined

And it's evident that cable news is dominated by FoxNEWS which regularly outdraws all the other cable news programs lumped together.

No surprise that POTUS Zero has lost a point in his approval ratings and is just above 40% approval---pretty rapid fall for 18 months, but no surprise.
