Behind the Poll:

According to a new Gallup poll, trust in the media has fallen to 36%, its second-lowest level in Gallup polling history. This is a decrease of 4% since the poll was conducted last year.

The lowest trust levels were recorded in 2016 when only 32% of those polled by Gallup expressed trust in the media. This suggests that trust in the media is in steep decline across America.

Many conservatives believe the media pushes globalism, whereas liberals think it safeguards the truth from conspiracy theories and misinformation. Do you trust mainstream media outlets?
