Media Still Not Getting It?

I start having problems, the first thing I do is look into ME.

Hey folks,

This is just too funny. They really still do not get it. Then again, some of you most likely do not get why some are still there to begin with. According to Your News.com - American's to corporate media: We don’t trust you

A Gallup poll has revealed that a record majority of Americans fundamentally do not trust the mass media and believe it to be politically biased.

By Steve Watson

NEW YORK (NY) - When asked how much confidence they have in newspapers, TV and Radio to accurately report events, 57% of Americans surveyed said that they generally have “not very much or none at all”.

The figure marks a one percent rise on 2008’s record high of 56%, while the general trend shows an increase in mistrust in the media of around 13% over the past decade.

Just 43% of Americans said they now have “a great deal or fair amount” of trust in the mainstream media, a record low, and a plummeting drop from a height of 72% in the mid 1970s.
You know why right? The New Media. Back in the 70's, 80's, and into early 90,s The Media had no competition. They also attempted to at least mask their Liberal Insane agenda and their Bias. People trusted anything they saw on the Local 5pm News.

However, since the launch of the New Media, Talk Radio, the Blogs, the Internet, Cable News, ETC. they have been losing readers, viewership, ETC. Why? Because the Mainstream Media can no longer get away with MAKING the News. They get caught now in reporting misleading, or fraudulent Stories. They get caught every time they try. They have given up even trying anymore to hide their Bias. Now people get the truth. They get FACTS. They make up their own minds.

A total of 63% of Americans said that they perceive a political bias in the mainstream media, with 48% believing it to be too liberal and 15% too conservative.

Interestingly, the survey finds that those identifying themselves with Democrats and liberals are happier with their daily feed of corporate news, with 59% and 54% respectively saying they currently have a great deal or fair amount of trust in the mass media.

The results reflect the rise of the alternative media and Internet news sources, which are rapidly gaining popularity amongst Americans, who are turning away from traditional media sources.

In another recent Gallup poll, just 25% of people of all ages stated that they had trust in newspapers and television news.
So why are some of them still there? Why does it seem that they do not care that their Bias is on full display? They are OWNED by Corporations, and Liberals, that FUND them. They simple report whatever they are told to.

Yes folks, they do not rely on their Readership, Viewers, or the common folks. They are well funded by those that are still hoping that the majority of Americans still trust them over the New Media. That is not the reality of the situation as these numbers show. But they will continue because they are PAID by and Funded by Liberals. The truth is, Private Non-Profit Organizations Funding The NewsSome even want the Government to bail out some of them.

So I think they actually DO get it, they just do not care. They will continue to report, or not, whatever they are told, as long as the funding continues.
