First, here are the polls:
Now consider this: how can the media swallow this horrible truth: THE PEOPLE TRUST GOVERNMENT MORE THAN THE MEDIA.
That has got to be a pretty big pill for the media to swallow. They should’ve trusted MORE than government. And yet… it ain’t so!
When I lived in China, all my friends there (native Chinese and expats) resoundingly agreed that the media cannot be trusted. Why? Because they knew and know that the media had a political agenda.
What do these polls then say about the American media? It makes it clear as glass: the American public also know that the media here also have a political agenda. And that should not be the case in a democratic republic.
In China? Okay, fine. NOT in the United States of America.
The media’s respect is declining on a daily basis.
If they don’t start reporting honestly soon, they are going to lose what little credibility they have remaining.
