Nothing happens for decades then …. decades happen in a day. We are witnessing a sea change, a seismic shift in the order of our world. Long over-due, I’d say.

Americans Trust Trump Administration More Than News Media in New Poll

Only 39 percent call media “truthful” in Emerson College survey, compared to 49 percent for new White House

Brian Flood The Wrap, February 9, 2017:

An Emerson College poll found that 49 percent of U.S. voters believe that the Trump administration is “truthful,” while only 39 percent feel that way about the news media. Worse, for the so-called “opposition party,” 53 percent of those surveyed described the media as “untruthful.”

The poll, released on Tuesday, also showed that Americans are divided on Trump’s performance so far — 48 percent of registered voters approve of the job that Trump is doing, compared to 47 percent who disapprove.

It a statistic that should not come as a surprise, the poll notes that 89 percent of Republicans approve of Trump, while 81 percent of Democrats disapprove. According to the poll, Trump’s “failure to pass the 50 percent threshold” for approval is because of his standing among independents, a group in which 52 percent disapprove.

Trump and his surrogates have been combative with the media, often referring to CNN as “fake news,” and bashing the industry in general, labeling it the “opposition party.”

The partisan divide is clear throughout the poll’s findings, with 89 percent of Republicans calling the Trump administration truthful, while 77 percent of Democrats find the administration untruthful.

Conversely, 69 percent of Democrats find the news media truthful, while 91 percent of Republicans consider them untruthful. Independents split the difference — 42 percent call the Trump administration untruthful and 45 percent say and the news media is.
