77% Do Not Trust Television News
Sunday, June 16, 2013
The annual Gallup survey revealing confidence in institutions made news earlier this week for a record low score of 10% for Congress. But another figure is noteworthy in the study: only 23% of those polled said they had a “great deal” or “quite a lot” of confidence in Television News.
One would think that 77% lacking trust in television news is a staggering number. Yet it is actually an improvement over last year’s results of 79% (or 21% with confidence).
