It’s official, conservatives are done with the establishment media.
After years of playing favorites for left-wing Democrats, their numbers are falling like a rock.
And now, one new report shows why trust in the liberal media is at an all-time low.
Across the country, conservatives are turning off the TV and tuning out of liberal media outlets of all forms.
It’s part of a broader movement where independents, Republicans, and libertarians are increasingly abandoning news outlets that have all but declared themselves to be propaganda pieces of the Democratic Party.
And now, one new report is showing how conservatives are all but done with the mainstream media, which is enjoying one of the worst levels of trust in recorded history.
Axios reports, “Americans’ trust in all big institutions has cratered, but look at the massive gap in who we do trust. Blue America trusts the media by double digits more than red America does.”
The result has been nothing short of a disaster for the left-wing media, which has seen almost half of his potential audience completely turned off due to the extreme levels of political bias they have engaged in in recent years.
This trend was developing during the Obama years, but things sped up considerably under President Donald Trump, as the media’s true colors showed themselves to the entire nation over and over again.
“Overall trust in key U.S. institutions has dropped 10 points in the past decade, according to Gallup, which began tracking the question during the Watergate year of 1973.” adds Axios.
“At the other end of the spectrum, Gallup reports, are Congress, TV news, big business, the criminal justice system and newspapers — each with a confidence rating at or below 21%. Congress (12%) and big business (18%) have ranked at the bottom of the list since 2007.”
Now, conservatives have all but deserted the establishment media, and there’s little sign they have any plans to ever come back.
Instead, alternative media sources are gaining steam, as conservative blogs, websites, news shows, and podcasts have grown in size over the last four years, with more coming online every day.
Among television news, the gap among conservatives and liberal is even wider.
Democrats enjoy a 19 point trust gap among TV news, while trust in news outlets like CNN and NBC are at rock bottom levels for Republicans.
But the largest gap lies with newspapers, where Republicans have all but given up on most major outlets, like the New York Times and the Washington Post.
These papers have made it abundantly clear over the past four years that they are the enemy of conservatives in America, and despise everything that conservatives stand for.
The result of course has been a collapse in newspaper subscriptions for conservatives, and a mass migration away from traditional establishment TV outlets as well, with most news stations experiencing a major drop in viewers over the past four years, and especially since January when Joe Biden first took office.
