Massive number of Americans say news media ARE the enemy 'More and more people are growing impatient and distrustful of the stories'

President Trump often has called the legacy media in America the enemy of the people.

He repeatedly was in conflict with reporters over their biased questions, implications of wrongdoing and more – all because of their questions that often took on the attitude like the infamous no-win query: "When did you stop beating your children?"

Now a poll shows he was right.

Rasmussen Reports reveals 59% of respondents to a new poll confirm they consider those publications, broadcasters and more their "enemy."

"A majority of voters don’t trust the news they’re getting about politics, and still agree with former President Donald Trump’s denunciation of the news media as 'the enemy of the people'" Rasmussen said.

Its survey found "30% of Likely U.S. voters say they trust the political news they’re getting – down from 37% in July 2021 – while 52% say they don’t trust political news, and 19% are not sure."

The survey of 1,002 U.S. Likely Voters was conducted on May 16-18, 2023 by Rasmussen Reports. The margin of sampling error is +/- 3 percentage points.

A column from Paul Bedard of the Washington Examiner explained, "Maybe it’s the softball questions lofted to top administration officials. It could have been the applause and laughter from reporters that greeted President Joe Biden at the White House Correspondents’ Dinner when he bragged about ignoring them.

"Whatever it is, more and more people are growing impatient and distrustful of the stories coming out of Washington."

He explained, "One reason may be the left-wing bias they see in those stories. An equal 52% said that the media favors Democrats by more than 2-1. … The survey is similar to some that continue to ask if, as former President Donald Trump once said, the media is the enemy of the people."

The pollster said it's actually a majority of every racial category – "58% of whites, 51% of black voters and 68% of...

no intelligent American trusts any of the media to report any unbiased/correct/researched news at this point in time; it appears that they all look at the through whatever colored glasses serve (pay) them best

FFS welcome to the party. The music and dancing next door has been going on for decades and it's just now you're realizing their making an awfully lot of noise??? The legacy media are scum, bough and paid for. Over the years I've had numerous back & forths with various op/ed writers and beat "journalists" Right now there a POS on the AZ Republic that refuses to believe ANY of the hands fucking down evidence I send him and that Kari Lake has put forth, instead just parroting the judgment of the court. That election was stolen. PERIOD.

It's hopeless, they're entrenched. But all they're doing is singing to the choir. But the fact is legacy media is losing. They come around to our established facts years after we've exposed the truth. Who in the fuckity fuck pays any GD attention to the alphabets? Their numbers are tanking, while alternative sources of info skyrocket.

There's just too many holes in the info/truth dike they've tried to erect. On top of everything else, most of the morons sucking this poison info juice down are vaxxed. It's a problem taking care of itself.

It is clear that Media is biased. What they do not understand is that they are dying as people are going to alternate methods to get the truth.
