Make big money in match-stick repair (and TV news)!
If I told you that:
* only 19.6% of Americans believe most news media reporting, down from 27.4% in '03..
* that 86% believed the media attempts to influence public policy, up from 77%...
* and that Americans think the New York Times and NPR are roughly four times more liberal than conservative...
Would you believe it?
That's what a recent national survey showed. Suitaby Flip has the details.
Oh. I forgot to mention that the most trusted name in news is Fox News (27.0%), followed by CNN (14.6%), NBC News (10.90%), ABC News (7.0%), CBS News (6.8%), MSNBC (4.0%) and PBS(3.0%). As recently as 2003, CNN led Fox News on "trust most for accurate reporting" 23.8% to 14.6%.
