Gallup’s annual poll measuring the public trust in mass media found a record high number of those who have no trust at all.
Six in ten of those polled have have “not very much” trust (27 percent) in the media, while those who have “none at all” hit a record 33 percent.
Only four in ten say they have “a great deal” (nine percent) or “fair amount” (31 percent) of trust in mass media.
The 40 percent number who do — for some dumb reason — trust the media is higher than the 32 percent record low achieved during the 2016 presidential election, but it is also down five points since 2018.
The 33 percent with no trust whatsoever is a record high.
One-third of the country has written the national media off entirely.
The national media’s sharp turn to the far-left does appear to have helped its standing with Democrats, who apparently enjoyed being serially lied to, so long as the lies hit their sweet spot. A full 73 percent of Democrats say they trust the media a “great deal or fair amount.” This is just three points below 2018’s record high of 76 percent.
Republicans’ trust of the media hit an all-time low of just ten percent.

Breitbart News Network (known commonly as Breitbart News, Breitbart or Breitbart.com) is an American far-right syndicated news, opinion and commentary website founded in mid-2007 by American conservative commentator Andrew Breitbart, who conceived it as “the Huffington Post of the right”. Its journalists are widely considered to be ideologically driven, and some of its content has been called misogynistic, xenophobic, and racist by liberals and many traditional conservatives alike. The site has published a number of conspiracy theories and intentionally misleading stories.
Breitbart News aligned with the alt-right under the management of former executive chairman Steve Bannon, who declared the website “the platform for the alt-right” in 2016. In 2016, Breitbart News became a virtual rallying spot for supporters of Donald Trump’s 2016 presidential campaign. The company’s management, together with former staff member Milo Yiannopoulos, solicited ideas for stories from, and worked to advance and market ideas of, neo-Nazi and white supremacist groups and individuals. After the election, more than 2,000 organizations removed Breitbart News from ad buys following Internet activism campaigns denouncing the site’s controversial positions.
Breitbart News is headquartered in Los Angeles, with bureaus in Texas, London, and Jerusalem. Co-founder Larry Solov is the co-owner (along with Andrew Breitbart’s widow Susie Breitbart and the Mercer family) and CEO, while Alex Marlow is the editor-in-chief, Wynton Hall is managing editor, and Joel Pollak and Peter Schweizer are senior editors-at-large.
