This is one reason why Trump playing the media today was epic. **** the dishonest media. Gallup poll: Public confidence in media falls to all-time low http://www.politico.com/blogs/on-me...in-media-falls-to-all-time-low-in-2016-228168 The American public’s trust in the media in 2016 has fallen to its lowest point since at least 1972, according to a new Gallup poll released Wednesday. Thirty-two percent of the respondents in Gallup’s most recent national poll said that they have “a great deal” or “a fair amount” of trust in the mass media, an eight percentage-point drop compared to 2015. It’s the lowest point in Gallup’s polling history, which began asking respondents whether they had trust and confidence in the media in 1972.
