Pew Survey: “Overwhelming American Dissatisfaction” With News Media

By Brian 

The NYT lead is negative: “The latest survey by the Pew Research Center for the People and the Press has found overwhelming American dissatisfaction with the news media, with a rising number of people saying that the press is ‘too critical of America.'”

Broadcasting & Cable’s lead is less downtroden: “Americans’ favorable views of TV and other news outlets continue to slip, but the media is still doing a better job winning over the public than President Bush the Supreme Court, Congress or other public institutions.”

As Jeff Jarvis says, “now that’s a case of damning with faint praise if I’ve ever heard it.”
