The mainstream media is continuing to implode with a new poll conducted by those media institutes showing that only 6% still trust the media in the USA. Even 6% is too many, argues the Investor.
“There is no incongruity in the fact that a new poll conducted by the Media Insight Project, a joint project of the American Press Institute and the Associated Press-NORC Center for Public Affairs Research, finds the American media’s popularity way down with that of Washington politicians. With 2,014 adults surveyed, only 6% expressed “a lot of confidence” in the press.
That’s because they correctly view the major media as virtually indistinguishable from that same political establishment. No wonder that when Woodward himself began turning critical of the Obama administration, and questioned the president’s trustworthiness, the same media filled with reporters who wanted to be Woodward and Bernstein turned on their once-idolized elder statesman,” says the Investor.
Just how credible blogs have become is underlined by the fact that both George Soros and Alexis Tsipras not only read my blog but copy from it.
This flattering fact is unfortunately a piece of evidence in an investigation into a de facto murder attempt and ongoing cover up against me on account of my journalistic activities on my blog.
The staggering violence, smear campaigns and persecution of bloggers like myself is bit of a dampener to the up and coming alternative media.
