Americans' distrust of the press goes deeper than partisanship and comes down to how journalists define their very mission, according to a new study from the Media Insight Project, a collaboration between the American Press Institute and AP-NORC. @dbauder
The study defined five core principles or beliefs that drive most journalists. And it found that non-journalists offer unqualified majority support for only one of them – the idea that the press should provide people with facts.
There is less support for the principle that it’s important for the media to keep watch on public officials and the powerful, to give a voice to the less powerful, to put information out in the open and to spotlight a community's problems.
