Ouch. Zogby did a poll right after the election that found Americans don't really trust the media and that Republicans are more distrustful than Democrats -- big surprise. Here's the distressing part:
Nearly 80% of respondents consider national television news to be unreliable and 84% consider radio to be unreliable.
According to 37.6% of those surveyed, news sources on the Internet are considered to be the most reliable
Now, I don't want to get into the whole "Internet is the most trusted source for news" debate I'm sure others will want to engage in. TV and radio can defend themselves. But newspapers are so little regarded that they aren't even asked about? We may be in deep trouble right now, but a great deal of the news on TV, radio and the Internet, originates with newspapers, OK? Sorry, feel better now.
