Here’s a new NPR/Marist poll that asked people how much they trust the media: a great deal, or not much? Not surprisingly, the poll results were upside-down for every group except Democrats, with 60 percent saying they trust the media “a great deal” (and 38 percent saying “not much”).
Over, 29 percent said they trust the media a great deal. We’re waiting for Brian Stelter’s newsletter explaining that it’s entirely President Trump’s fault for engendering a mistrust of “fake news,” but you’d hope that he and Jim Acosta and the rest of the press would take this as a wake-up call.

Anyone who trusts the media a great deal lacks the mental capacity to vote.
— Pouncing on the NY Times (@JamesWHicks) October 10, 2019
Dems at 60%
Voters at 32%
Honestly too high given the garbage state of media tbh

How odd Democrats think media is just fine. Very telling.

60/38 even though everything they have said was wrong? wow!

Funny, 92-8 is about the ratio of Democrat to Republican reporters.

Another way of asking this question would be if you think that the media sings your tune. Of course if they do, you'd trust them, it's confirmation bias.

Dems sure do love their confirmation bias.

Of course democrats trust those that constantly push their narrative. This pretty much says it all, doesn't it?

Dems HAVE to trust the media. They ARE the media. It would mean not trusting themselves for Dems to not trust the media.

Only 60% trust their own propaganda ?

After the media got the election polls SO WRONG in 2016, including all of the free press they gave Trump, and hammering a now-debunked Russian collusion narrative from a 2-year-congressional inquiry by Mueller, I'm very surprised to see the Dem's trust numbers that high. 🙄
— James Dalby (@jamesdalby) October 10, 2019
Love the closeness of Rs & Trump supporters. Also the obvious crazy ratio of Dems who still trust the media. Delusional or willful lemmings? 🤔Even after the Meuller lies of over 2.5 yrs were exposed they still believe….?!?! 🤦♀️🙄🤦♀️

Funny how those “polls” didn’t pan out in 2016. If they really believed in their own propaganda they wouldn’t feel the need to subvert democracy with these soviet show trials and their perpetual hoaxathon.

Surely everyone has SOMETHING that they know a lot about independent of the media.
And surely everyone has seen that thing come under mass reporting of the MSM, and been as shocked to watch "credible sources" completely fabricate around that thing they know about.

That's a horrible number for indies.
