From Columbia Journalism Review:

What we haven’t known is how people view the makings of journalism, from the use of fact checkers and anonymous sources to the question of whether money skews journalistic decision-making. This new national poll for CJR answers those questions, and points to how big the trust gap remains.

  1. I stopped watching local and national evening news show years ago. It wasn’t hard to tell just by the inflection in a “reporters” voice that they were trying to convey an opinion. I used to watch David Muir but he became a drama king.
    Now I get my news from you, Mollie Hemingway and Kim Strassel. AND I will NOT watch any show on FOX that has Donna Brazille on it. I am disgusted by the fact she cheated & tried to influence the election outcome and received no punishment but now receives a paycheck for what??

  2. During the Obama administration; an administration governed by a President who is supposed have some understanding of the constitution and freedom of speech, this is what they did:

    “There are groups out there that insist that vaccines are responsible for a variety of problems, despite all scientific evidence to the contrary. We [DHHS] have reached out to media outlets to try to get them not to give the views of these people equal weight in their reporting.” Kathleen Sebelius–Secretary of DHHS, February 2010, Readers Digest

    It is the reason why NPR PBS (they’re the worst of the worst ) will not let Robert Kennedy Jr. appear or interviewed on their shows. Then you have the rest of the rats, New York Times, WaPo, LA Times, CBS, NBC, ABC. Only Fox news Tucker Carlson has had Kennedy on his show. Trust in Media_______insert expletive.

    And this: “…any possible doubts, whether or not well founded, about the safety of the vaccine cannot be allowed to exist in view of the need to assure the vaccine will continue to be used to the maximum extent consistent with the nation’s public health objectives.” Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) Federal Register Vol 49 No 107 June 1, 1984

    No one wants to be held accountable for the crimes against humanity. Not congress bought by pharma, not the media that pharma uses to market their dangerous products, and certainly not the government/pharma/medical industrial complex The government lies
