Public confidence in television news is at an all-time low, according to a survey released today by Gallup.
Only 18 percent of the Americans surveyed expressed either a “great deal” or “quite a lot” of confidence in that news medium.
Gallup has been asking the following question annually since 1993: “Now I am going to read you a list of institutions in American society. Please tell me how much confidence you, yourself, have in each one–a great deal, quite a lot, some or very little?” (See Gallup Confidence Survey.pdf) One of the institutions listed is “television news.”
