Is Public Distrust of the Media Rising?
There was once a time when the media was a trusted source of information. Unfortunately, that was so long ago that no one can remember it. In the modern era, “news” has given way to punditry and spin, and more and more Americans are turning to alternative information sources to discover the who, what, why, where, and when of the stories they are reading. In fact, it is safe to say that following the last election cycle, the credibility of all major news outlets has been severely tarnished.
