Poll: 60 percent of Democrats trust the media a great deal, while only 8 percent of Republicans do

Here’s a new NPR/Marist poll that asked people how much they trust the media: a great deal, or not much? Not surprisingly, the poll results were upside-down for every group except Democrats, with 60 percent saying they trust the media “a great deal” (and 38 percent saying “not much”).

Over, 29 percent said they trust the media a great deal. We’re waiting for Brian Stelter’s newsletter explaining that it’s entirely President Trump’s fault for engendering a mistrust of “fake news,” but you’d hope that he and Jim Acosta and the rest of the press would take this as a wake-up call.
