Media Credibility In The Toilet As Nearly 60 Percent Say Trump Attacked

Way over half of the country recognizes that the mainstream media is full of it, and trust in reporting has tanked.

Trust in the mainstream media has gone into the toilet with more than half of Americans expressing their disbelief.

Public trust in the established media has tanked. People no longer believe the lies, manipulations, and strategies the leftist thought-controllers have forced upon society and much of that has been caused by their rabid and hysterical hate of President Trump.

The attacks have backfired to an extent that many believe the industry will not be able to recover from.

An IBD/TIPP poll asked about “the public’s perception of the mainstream news media” and found that “fully half the country says its trust in the media decreased over the past two years.”

Only eight percent found that they had increased their trust of the mainstream media.

Inside that overall number, the poll found that 49 percent of Independents have lost trust in the media over the last two years, along with 81 percent of conservatives.

In fact, a stunning 69 percent of the public believes the establishment media are “more concerned with advancing its points of view rather than reporting all the facts.”

That’s huge. And, media outlets and leftist reporters only have themselves to blame.

“What’s more, nearly half (43 percent) of Democrats agree with that statement, along with an incredible 72 percent of Independents and 95 percent of Republicans.”

When asked if media coverage is designed to “delegitimize the views held by President Trump and his supporters,” 59 percent of people agreed, ‘including 60 percent of Independents and 93 percent of Republicans.’

“The media’s non-stop lying and fake news stories about the Russia Collusion Hoax has also backfired. A majority of 53 percent now believe the media “prematurely declared President Trump guilty of collusion with Russia without sufficient evidence” — this includes 55 percent of Independents and even 22 percent of Democrats, which is more than one in five.

“To recap, during Trump’s presidency…

  • 50 percent have lost trust in the media
  • 69 percent do not believe the media are fact-driven
  • 59 percent say the media have an agenda is to delegitimize Trump
  • 53 percent believe the media prematurely smeared Trump as a Russian spy”

Here’s the truth:

Viewers are waking up to the fact that the mainstream media is nothing but political propaganda designed to control the thoughts and feelings of the public so that radical, globalist views will be embraced.

The Russia Collusion Hoax is unraveling.

“On the flipside, Trump’s fortunes are improving. A recent poll of 2020 general election voters shows the president in good shape when compared to most of the Democrat field, and now that Democrats have taken control of the House of Representatives, the contrast between these far-left radicals and Trump’s reasonable policy proposals have improved his public approval ratings.

“There is also the unreported fact that, by every historical standard, Trump is doing a superb job as president. The economy is humming, the world is more stable, and rather than entangling ourselves in stupid wars, we are disentangling ourselves.

“In other words, Americans are enjoying their first taste of peace and prosperity since September 11, 2001.

“The media’s hate campaign against Trump — a campaign waged with fake news, conspiracy theories, bigotry, and flat-out lies — has only resulted in a backlash against this very same media. In an effort to destroy Trump, this deeply corrupted and unethical institution is only destroying itself.”

Many people expect to see even more hate-filled lies as the ramp up to the 2020 election begins. It’s almost as if these reporters can’t stop themselves and have no will power to control their own hate.

Too many lies, too many ‘mistakes,’ and too much hate.
