Ron Paul discusses this article in the video above:
Trust in the media is at an all-time low. That’s a terrible thing for all of us.
And now for today’s least shocking statistic: Just four in 10 Americans say they have a “great deal” or a “fair amount” of trust in the media to report the news fairly and accurately, according to new data from Gallup. That matches historic lows the media also “achieved” in 2012 and 2014.
And while Republicans trust the media less than Democrats do, the numbers across all party affiliations are in rapid decline from even a decade ago.
There’s little evidence that the whole trusting-the-media thing is going to get more popular; people under 50 years old are far more skeptical of the idea of media as fair arbiters than those over 50.
GOOD!, some of you will, undoubtedly shout — particularly if you are either a conservative Republican or liberal Democrat. You deserve what you get! Your years of lies and agenda-pushing have finally caught up to you. WE ARE ON TO YOU.
To which I say: Wrong.
