Gee, I wonder why?

Via Washington Examiner.

Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump’s claim that the mainstream media can’t be trusted is bolstered by at least four polls showing that as few as 6 percent have full confidence in what the press is writing and showing on TV.

Pew, Gallup, Facebook, Rasmussen, and the American Press Institute have all recorded new lows in media trust, dismal results that bolster Trump’s charges that TV and the press are throwing “outright lies” at him, most recently charges if groping women.

“Let’s be clear on one thing, the corporate media in our country is no longer involved in journalism – they are a political special interest no different from a lobbyist,” Trump said Thursday in West Palm Beach, Fla. “Their agenda is to elect crooked Hillary Clinton at any cost, at any price, no matter how many lives they destroy.”

The polls have not had a chance to survey reaction to Trump’s latest charges. But overall it is clear that an overwhelming percentage of Americans don’t believe much of what the media is reporting.

    End any/all federal grants to journalism schools. They’re not working.
