Shocking new poll reveals Americans’ true feeling about state of ‘fake news’

The numbers are utterly incredible.

Free speech is the very cornerstone of our democracy here in the United States.  Without the ability to speak our minds, there is no real freedom to be had in this great nation.

With that First Amendment right comes the free press as well – a tool used to protect the American people from oppression, and bolster the diversity of opinion that makes this American experiment such a beacon of light in an otherwise worrisome world.

Americans are growing concerned, however, that the state of the mainstream media is turning ever more hyperbolic, and that the rise of ultra-partisan “fake news” will soon push our First Amendment rights into uncharted waters.

Nearly all Americans are “troubled” by the state of the media, according to a new study from boutique PR agency, Bospar, in collaboration with Propeller Insights.

The survey of 1,010 American adults found that more than 95% are troubled by the current state of media, with 53% citing “reports on fake news,” 49% citing “reporting gossip,” and 48% citing “lying spokespeople,” as the key causes.

And that’s not all…

Of the respondents, 67% believe ethics in journalism will be worse during the 2020 presidential campaign, while 40% of those surveyed considered local print and online journalists as the most ethical and 23% considered local TV reporters and anchors most ethical. National print and online journalists are considered the most trustworthy by 22%, while only 15% said national TV anchors and reporters were the most ethical.

President Donald Trump has long been a critic of the mainstream “infotainment” media, often taking time out of his day to lambast their rhetoric via Twitter.

As it turns out, he’s not alone in that concern.
