One more sign that the public’s trust in national media has eroded to a startling level.

A revealing poll by POLITICO/Morning Consult shows considerable distrust of the national media. Overall, 46% believe the media fabricates news stories about President Trump and his administration.

Only 37% say the media doesn’t make up stories while 17% are undecided.

That means only about a third of Americans believe the media isn’t making up stories. 



As you would expect, more Republicans than Democrats would feel that way. 76% say the media invents stories. 20% of Democrats, though, feel the same.

If you strongly approve of Trump’s job performance, the number who think the media makes stuff up jumps to a whopping 85%.
