Gallup Poll Finds Confidence In TV News Has Hit A New Low

Confidence in television news has hit a new low, a new Gallup poll reported Tuesday.

The polling firm does an annual survey of the confidence that Americans have in their biggest institutions. Gallup noted that its survey took place before CNN and Fox News botched the Supreme Court’s ruling on President Obama’s health care law, presumably as a way to emphasize just how little faith people seem to have in their newscasts.

Just 21% of adults said they had a “great deal” or “quite a lot” of confidence in TV news. That’s down a whopping 25% from 1993, when Gallup began the poll:
