Gallup Poll: TV Reporters Not Seen as Very Honest or Ethical by Any Political Party

By Kevin Eck 

Gallup recently released a poll ranking 22 professions by their perceived honesty and ethics.

The poll was not kind to TV journalists which showed the percentage of responders who ranked professions either very high or high in ethics and honesty.

While more Democrats (25%) and Independents (21%) than Republicans (15%) said TV reporters had a high or very high standard of ethics and honesty, 26 percent of responders between the ages of 18 and 34 said they thought TV reporters were ethical and honest compared to 17 percent of those older than 55.
