If you're an avid reader of Natural News, maybe the headline of
this story doesn't surprise you because, obviously, you are here for
information you just can't get in the so-called "establishment"
mainstream media. But perhaps you didn't quite know the extent of the
mistrust the American people have for the Fourth Estate, which was, at our nation's founding, given unique and unprecedented freedoms so as to afflict the comfortable and comfort the afflicted.
So much for the original agreement. According to a recent Gallup survey,
Americans' distrust of the media hit a record high this year, "with 60
percent saying they have little or no trust in the mass media to report
the news fully, accurately, and fairly."
That alarming figure is
the result of a trend seen worsening over the past few years as more and
more Americans became less and less trustful of Big Media.
