According to a recent survey by Oxford University’s Reuters Institute for the Study of Journalism, Americans have the lowest trust of the mainstream media of the 46 countries surveyed.

According to the survey less than a third of Americans (29%) said they completely trusted the mainstream media, with 44% stating that they did not. This 15% trust gap was the highest of the countries surveyed and revealed that Americans have the least trust in the mainstream media.

Of course, this was not the first survey to show that people are losing their trust of America’s legacy media.

The Daily Wire noted:

Previous surveys have found Americans willingness to believe the news media falling to all-time lows, but the Associated Press blamed its readers, saying the trouble is “not all Americans universally embrace core journalism values.”

According to the Associated Press, it is American’s fault that they have a brain and don’t automatically believe what the mainstream media is throwing at them.
