An interesting story. I tried to get the Rasmussen article directly, but they demand an “account” to read it. So here’s secondary references.
First up, a Dr. Steve Turley video that goes through it all. The statistics are startling. Basically, about 1/3 of the population, max, thinks the media is being honest and can sort of be trusted. The rest do not. Democrats, of course, make up most of the “believers”. But even there about 40% are saying it isn’t trustworthy.
Trump & GOP raised $13 Million since Pelosi decided Indictment By Rumor was a good idea.
Trump poll numbers are up.
Media trust rank plummets.
Rasmussen: “It is Game Over for U.S. Political Media voter influence”
54% of Americans don’t trust the MSM on political news
32% trust the media
61% of Republicans and 59% of Independents don’t trust media.
42% of Democrats trust the media.
43% of Democrats don’t trust the media
Rasmussen end of Sept: “Do you think the NYT is, generally speaking, reporting the news in an accurate and fair manner?”
3/4 of Americans think the media is dividing Americans along political, racial and gender lines. (That whole “Woke” thing… and gee, they are going broke…)
“Republicans were almost unanimous” and “slight majority of Democrats also believe the media were divisive and guilty of spreading hate and misunderstanding. 51%”
Media Insight Project in assoc. with A.P.:
“Only 6% of Americans have a lot of trust in media”… SIX. NOT a typo. You get 6% just from people who didn’t hear the question right…
“Nearly 95% of the population being skeptical at least in some degree”
So what happens when your Propaganda Operation is outed, folks are staying away in the millions and those that do see / read / hear it are thinking it’s lies and crap / spin? Then they look on CSPAN / YouTube / whatever and actually watch the barf fests of Nadler, Shiff, The Squad, Pelosi, etc. and just decide for themselves that this is NOT what they want.
IMHO, the Democratic party as currently constituted is toast. Way past “Jump The Shark” and off into Socialist / SJW Insanity Land. Most Americans are not.
Having decided to drive away the “middle of the bell curve” where most of us are found, embracing the 3 sigma end of the far left: that is a strategy for losing. Big Time. And they are taking down the media with them. Thousands have already gotten “lay off” letters (“redundancy” in UK terms) with many many more to come.
