Mainstream media & Public Trust: A Tale of Two Newsrooms

#PublicTrust #MainstreamMedia Public trust in mainstream media remains low. According to a 2020 Gallup poll, "...the public remains largely distrustful of the mass media. Four in 10 U.S. adults say they have "a great deal" (9%) or "a fair amount" (31%) of trust and confidence in the media to report the news "fully, accurately, and fairly," while six in 10 have "not very much" trust (27%) or "none at all" (33%)." In this video, I show two examples of newsrooms talking directly to the public, one in a way I find unhelpful and the other I believe is a move in the right direction. One is from a local TV station in Des Moines, Iowa and the other is Krystal Ball with Rising on The Hill.
