Poll: Over Half of Americans Say They Do Not Trust The Press

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. You can read detailed results of the poll by checking out this Think Progress article. So what is it about mainstream media that YOU don’t like? What about it do you like? And what makes Internet news and information sites and radio more trustworthy in the eyes of Americans (keep in mind, however, much of it is owned and operated by mainstream media, especially radio)? What, if anything, can mainstream media do to restore the faith of the American people?
