There seems to be some good news about those who cover and report the news, according to Adweek, which stated that Poynter Institute is reporting that “after decades of declining trust in the press, coupled with relentless rhetorical attacks on the media by President Trump,” a new survey shows that “trust in media is up since last year, and the great majority of Americans trust their local news sources.”

“According to a Poynter Media Trust Survey,  76 percent of Americans have “a great deal” or “a fair amount” of trust in their local TV news, and 73 percent have confidence in local newspapers.

“Trust in national news is not quite as high, though it still exceeds 50 percent. According to Poynter, 55 percent of Americans across the political spectrum have at least “a fair amount” of trust in national TV news, 59 percent in national newspapers and 47 percent in online-only news outlets.”
