(Mar 07 2008) - Americans Don't Trust The Press :
Post Opinion : Post Editor - A. L. "LUCKY" Lucketta
A new Harris Interactive poll finds that over half of Americans 54 percent say they tend not to trust the press, with only 30 percent tending to trust the press. More Americans (41 percent) trust Internet news and information sites than they do the mainstream media. Radio tends to do best among Americans as 44 percent say they tend to trust it.

The Harris results reflect the findings of a Harvard University study {pdf} conducted last year, which found nearly two-thirds of Americans do not trust campaign coverage by the news media. A few other recent surveys offer some explanation for the publics distrust: below are a few highlights ...

Harvard University Study : Findings

Harvard Poll and Survey 1.) Two thirds of Americans - 67% - believe traditional journalism is out of touch with what Americans want from their news.
2.) The harshest indictments of the press come from the growing segment that relies on the internet as its main source for news. The internet news audience is particularly likely to criticize news organizations for their lack of empathy, their failure to stand up for America, and political bias. It's no wonder the Porterville Post has gained the attention of so many locals.
3.) Democrats, Republicans and independents have decreased confidence in the accuracy of media reports on the war.

As the Post continues to grow, we'll remain aware of the significance of Harvards findings and seek GOD daily for those stories that do have meaning and merit.
