I read this last week, and I instantly needed a hug.
Record numbers of Americans consider the news media to be “immoral,” “inaccurate,” and “biased,” a new poll says.

Now you need a hug, too.
Fortunately, the depressing news about how people feel about The Media changes when asked about their main source of information. People have a much higher level of trust and a perception of greater accuracy.

Read the two pieces I’ve hyper-linked (above), because I really really want to know what you think.
