No Surprise to See Most Americans Don't Trust the Media; US Fake-News Media Ranks DEAD LAST in 46 Country Survey on Media Trust, and related stories

Joe Concha: No surprise to see most Americans don't trust the media:
Take a bow. The U.S. media finished dead last in the world on the trust front in a new poll.
The country with the most resources – human, technical and otherwise – the country with the most channels, finished 46th in a 46-horse race in trust, according to a Reuters survey this week. Finland ranked the highest with a 65-percent trust rating.
But here in the U.S., we're trusted by a whopping 29 percent of those reading and watching. The Reuters survey also found that trust in media improved in nearly every country surveyed from last year, but not in this country, where it remained largely flat.
You want to laugh? The favorite category that we have here is the weather.
But are you really surprised? Looking at polls over the last few years – we're talking pre-Donald Trump – we've been trending in this dubious direction for some time. --->READ MORE HERE
US Fake-News Media Ranks DEAD LAST in 46 Country Survey on Media Trust — Meanwhile Trust in TGP Soars:
America’s fake-news media ranked dead last in a survey of 92,000 consumers in 46 countries on mainstream media trust.
You really have to work hard to capture this not-so–coveted spot on the list.
America’s media hacks ranked lower than Nigeria, South Africa, Indonesia and Mexico.
The reported:
The United States ranks last in media trust — at 29% — among 92,000 news consumers surveyed in 46 countries, a report released Wednesday found. That’s worse than Poland, worse than the Philippines, worse than Peru. (Finland leads at 65%.)

The annual digital news report from the Reuters Institute for the Study of Journalism at Oxford also found some improvement in trust in nearly all the countries surveyed — probably thanks to COVID-19 coverage — but not in the U.S. where the low rating was flat year to year.
