The Lame Stream Media Is Seen As Lame

A big poll of "confidence" was taken recently. Who sucked at an all time low? The Lame-Stream Media.

Those having a "great deal" or "quite a lot" of confidence in newspapers dipped from 30% to 28% in one year, the same total for television. The previous low for newspapers was 29% in 1994. Since 2000, confidence in newspapers has declined from 37% to 28%, and TV from 36% to 28%, according to the poll.

Other "institutions" like the President and Congress also fared poorly. Confidence in the presidency plunged from 52% to 44%, with Congress and the criminal-justice system also suffering 8% drops. Confidence in the U.S. Supreme Court fell from 46% to 41%. The 22% confidence rating for Congress is its lowest in eight years . . . .

Who fared well? The whipping boys of the Lame-stream Media, the military, police and religion, further supporting the dim view of LSM by the poll.

The military topped the poll with a 74% confidence rating, with the police at 63% and organized religion at 53%.
Blogs, on the other hand, fared best, with a 100% confidence level by all respondents that don't work in the Lame-stream Media. I made that up, but that is expected of me since this is a blog.
