Public Confidence in TV News at All Time Low

Uh-Oh! This isn't good....

A new Gallup Poll shows that Public confidence in television news is at an all-time low.

Only 18 percent of the Americans surveyed expressed either a “great deal” or “quite a lot” of confidence in that news medium.

Gallup has been asking people about their faith in TV news annually since 1993 and that faith has been dropping almost every year. 

In the latest survey, conducted June 5-8, only 10 percent said they had “a great deal” of confidence in T.V. news, and 8 percent said they had “quite a lot” of confidence.

The previous low was in 2012, when a combined 21 percent said they had a great deal or quite a lot of confidence in television news. In 2013, it was 23 percent.
