Trustworthy News

"Let's never forget. We're the real story, not them."
--Aaron Altman (Broadcast News)

Study shows US near bottom of pack for trustworthy news. Would be interesting to see a study of this over time.

The article suggests that higher trustworthiness associated with 'the presence of well funded public service broadcasters.' Ponder that for moment. The greater the resource dependence on government sponsored entities, the more trustworthy the news?

Perhaps the picture reflects US information consumers who are further along in the process of waking up to just how slanted the mainstream media complex is. Others are still asleep.
