A Gallup poll has revealed that a record majority of Americans fundamentally do not trust the mass media and believe it to be politically biased.
When asked how much confidence they have in newspapers, TV and Radio to accurately report events, 57% of Americans surveyed said that they generally have “not very much or none at all”.
The figure marks a one percent rise on 2008’s record high of 56%, while the general trend shows an increase in mistrust in the media of around 13% over the past decade.
Just 43% of Americans said they now have “a great deal or fair amount” of trust in the mainstream media, a record low, and a plummeting drop from a height of 72% in the mid 1970s.
A total of 63% of Americans said that they perceive a political bias in the mainstream media, with 48% believing it to be too liberal and 15% too conservative.
Interestingly, the survey finds that those identifying themselves with Democrats and liberals are happier with their daily feed of corporate political propaganda, with 59% and 54% respectively saying they currently have a great deal or fair amount of trust in the mass media.
The results reflect the rise and rise of the alternative media and Internet news sources, which are rapidly gaining popularity amongst Americans, who are turning away from the dinosaur media in droves.
In another recent Gallup poll, just 25% of people of all ages stated that they had trust in newspapers and television news.
Of course, this is not god news for the Federal government, given that it considers those who disagree with the mass media’s version of events to be potential domestic terrorists. By this logic over half of all Americans are potentially radical extremists.
With the increasing awakening to the blatant bias of the corporate media, we encourage our readers to help us reach the next level and be equipped to step in and fill the void.
The corporate media admits that billions of dollars of taxpayer money are being used to expand the propaganda efforts at Fox News, CNN, and wide array of corporate local television stations in order to inculcate the masses with government scripted lies and distract them with meaningless sports and celebrity events as the economy and society is systematically dismantled and a control grid and police state implemented around them.
The infowar is not funded and supported by the elite, their foundations, or the corporate media’s television and radio networks. It is critical that we take the infowar to the next level if we are going to effectively resist the ominous threat posed by the global elite and their cadre of technocrats orchestrating slick propaganda.
Two and a half years ago Alex Jones made the decision to move into a new suite of offices, build a studio, expand his film production, and grow his web news operations. The effort was fantastically successful, but would not have been possible without your generous support. The 2009 moneybomb allowed us to increase our staff, lease the empty warehouse next to us, build more offices, create a professional television studio, and begin work on an upcoming social networking site.
