According to the Daily Caller, the NewYork Times (NYT) has issued a retraction on yet another fake news story. The NYT has most recently been in the spotlight for printing some whoppers. This one, however, was big. The NYT allegedly claimed that all 17 US intelligence agencies agreed that Russia conducted the attacks, and assisted Trump on winning his presidency. Not only is this believed to be false, but they reportedly printed the story without any credible sources.

With that being said, Americans are asking the question, “who do we trust for real news anymore?” In my opinion, many of the news agencies that we once trusted such as CNN, MSNBC, NYT, and much more, have sadly proven to be fake news over the past year.

So what gives? Is there an end to the madness? If you are asking this question, you are not alone. According to a Gallup poll, America's trust in the media has dropped since last year. That is counting both republicans and democrats. So how far has trust dropped?

Gallup reports historical statistics

According to Gallup polls, only 32% of Americans still trust the media. That is down 8 percent from 2016. With the rise of fake news being reported almost daily, it is not a surprise that these numbers dominate the statistics these days. Gallop reports that these numbers have never been seen since they have been taking polls.

According to Gallup, the election this year may take a role in the sharp decline in numbers.

Republicans trust in the media has dropped from 32% to 14% over the past year. With the liberal media only reporting bad things about Trump, the American people are tired of the fake news. CNN alone has reported 90% negative reports on #President Trump since the campaigns. That is appalling if we realize that Jobs are up, unemployment is down, and our country is a little safer to live in since the Obama era.

Democrats trust has also dropped

Democrats trust in the media has dropped sharply from 70% to 51% since 2005.Those are huge numbers when you figure that CNN and MSNBC are liberal news networks. So according to the polls, the Democrats are as equally tired of the fake news as Republicans are. Many say that lately, the two party’s can’t find equal ground, according to these polls, I believe we have. So why won't the mainstream media just report the facts?

According to Project Veritas, there are no ratings in the truth. That is coming from the CEO of CNN. So where do we go from here? Many have started boycotting the media outlets. However, if we do that, then who will report all their fake news to the people? #New York #New York Times
