Americans Have Lost Trust In Media, Congress, Public Schools

Videos by OutKick

According to a new Gallup poll, the corporate press is so dishonest that only our deceitful members of Congress are considered less trustworthy.

Just 21% of respondents said they had “a great deal” or “quite a lot” of confidence in newspapers, while only 16% of respondents reported the same of TV news.

Translation: only brainwashed followers have faith in those lying, hateful media bots. 

Only the kooks in Congress are more shameful than the industry that employs Joy Reid. Telling.

By the way, how many of the following institutions have been hijacked by woke losers for financial and political gain? 

Interestingly, the media is the reason nearly half of poll respondents don’t trust the police. Mainstream media outlets have painted the police as the enemy to convince the American people that Democrat leaders are the solution to dangerous interactions with police. In doing so, these grandstanding frauds have refused to acknowledge statistics that quickly debunk their tired talking points.

Lisa Boothe elaborated on this topic in an interview with OutKick last month:

“They continue to lie about police shootings in America, which has led to one of the deadliest years on record for murders in 2020. This is because of false narratives about police shootings. What they say is not happening.

“Look at the numbers in 2020, data wise, about the shootings: 5.3% of the shootings in 2020 were unarmed, 24 were white, 18 were black. That doesn’t even include people trying to reach for a gun or physically threatening a police officer. The numbers just don’t hold water, yet we continue to be held on hold by these demonstrable lies. It’s insanity to keep believing them.”

What liars they are.

Furthermore, the mainstream media’s partnership with technology companies explains why 29% of voters still trust the big tech industry. That number should be at least 20% lower. Those guys are awful. Social media companies hid the bombshell report about Hunter Biden last fall, which interfered in the 2020 election.

Facebook and Twitter banned us from questioning the origin of COVID-19 as well. Yet, 29% of respondents still trust them?

You also have to love the significant decline in trust for public schools between 2020 to 2021. Between the teacher unions and CRT, public schools are as uninterested in independent thinking as college campuses are and are only slightly more tolerant of opposing views than media companies.

What a depressing chart. We are led and “informed” by the worst type of people.

  1. It’s significantly more embarrassing that trust in all these institutions went up last year. It shows you how insanely naïve most people are. Crisis occurs (or is manufactured, really doesn’t matter), those in power ALWAYS use it to consolidate power, and we, the sheeple, look to those institutions to “save” us, at exactly the time when we should be looking away from institutions and toward each other to help in time of need (love all the families that created “school pods” and hired private tutors together with other classmates kicked out of school to at least mock a real in-person school experience). Every single time an institution tries to take away your liberty (basically all of them these days) rather than protect your liberty, you should have ZERO trust in them…

  2. If you’ve been paying any attention at all, that support for the military is stupid high. You’ve got active Generals who conspired against President Trump as well as classified right wing groups as Nazis, while the military also is shipping in illegals from their bases and urging secrecy of it.
