Confidence in newspapers, TV news hits bottom

Posted 06/13/2016 5:24 pm by

Confidence in newspapers has hit an all time low in the latest Gallup survey, and TV news is also at a new low, the latest proof that Americans are losing faith in the media.

 

Gallup found that just 20 percent have confidence in newspapers, a 10-point drop in 10 years. TV news saw an identical 10-point drop, from 31 percent to 21 percent.

But it could be worse. Of all the institutions Gallup surveyed on, Congress is at the bottom, with just 9 percent having confidence in America’s elected leaders, a finding that is clearly impacting the direction and tone of the 2016 elections.

    Never watched, read or listen to the main stream media in longer than 15 years…It happened when I got unplugged from the Matrix…Unfortunately many are still connected to it and believe all these designed events…

    On the 45th anniversary of the JFK assassination NBC Nightly News ran a story on how Lee Oswald was the only possible killer. I was so pissed at being lied to AGAIN, 45 years after the fact, that I clicked the “off” button and never watched any TV again, period. Now, whenever I attempt to discuss current affairs or economics with anyone who gets their information from mainstream TV or newspapers, I am shocked at how little they really know about what’s going on.

    Just one recent example: in trying to discuss the Hillary email scandal with a cousin recently, she was certain that poor Hillary had no choice but to buy her own computer for her office because the State Department was too cheap to buy her one. I’m sure she doesn’t know what a “server” is, or what a dot-gov email suffix is. She’s probably never heard that Hillary’s State Department couldn’t account for six billion dollars gone missing, either, or that the government spends billions of dollars on IT services which pretty much every employee has access to for email, usually in the format of (name)@(agency initials)(.gov).

    All kinds of reports on TV about how the guns are the problem, and not the FBI-trained Muslim assets.

    NOT ONE WORD about the over one-thousand earthquakes near the Sultan Sea in California (near San Diego).

    They tell us how we “have to fear Zika” in America (especially in Florida)….yet the Olympics is still on in the very Country where it’s SUPPOSED to the worst. I guess we are only to fear what THEY tell us to fear, and WHERE they tell us to fear it.

    Look at Florida after the massacre of the FBI/Zionist set-up false flag in Orlando………10’s of thousands are now giving blood…….and no fear of the ZIKA virus is to be found, not even the MENTION of a fear of the virus being given with a blood donation.

    What do these two events have in common??? MONEY.
