Americans trust the news media less than ever: “Just 29% of Americans say that news organizations generally get the facts straight, while 63% say that news stories are often inaccurate,” according to the latest results from the Pew Research Center released this week.

And an alarming 70 percent of people surveyed believe that news organizations “try to cover up their mistakes.”
