Trust in the MSM?

The big three news networks and the print rags have been losing the trust of the public, and now it appears that the majority doesn't even gets it's news from them any more.
Nearly 70 percent of Americans believe traditional journalism is out of touch, and nearly half are turning to the Internet to get their news, according to a new survey.

While most people think journalism is important to the quality of life, 64 percent are dissatisfied with the quality of journalism in their communities, a We Media/Zogby Interactive online poll showed.


Nearly half of the 1,979 people who responded to the survey said their primary source of news and information is the Internet, up from 40 percent just a year ago. Less than one third use television to get their news, while 11 percent turn to radio and 10 percent to newspapers.

Wow, the MSM's slide down into the sewer has been a long time coming, well deserved, and faster than I thought. 1/3 only get their news from TV and only 10% from newsprint, that is really low.

There may be hope for America since the public is turning away from the liberal biased MSM.
