Alan Mutter: fewer Americans trust the media

Alan Mutter:
Public confidence in the mainstream media has been eroding for at least a decade.The Pew Research Center for the People and the Press reported that only 19% of respondents trusted their local newspapers in 2006, as compared with 29% in 1998. In the same period, trust in national newspapers slid to 21% from 32%, broadcast news fell to 22% from 27% and cable news slipped to 25% from 37%.
Hat tip: comments

The MSM has only itself to blame.
Malpractice: McClatchy failed its readers by choosing not to examine Barack Obama's record
