The Corporate Media Explained in Two Headlines

Trust in media in America is on par with some of President Biden’s lowest approval ratings in recent weeks, standing at just 36 percent, according to Gallup, the lowest it’s been since 2016, when it went down to 32 percent. This marks a massive drop since the 1970s, when Gallup first began tracking public confidence in U.S. institutions. 

“Between 1972 and 1976, 68% to 72% of Americans expressed trust in the mass media; yet, by 1997, when the question was next asked, trust had dropped to 53%,” Gallup said. 

While the examples of malfeasance among mainstream media are ubiquitous, Steve Guest, communications adviser for Texas Sen. Ted Cruz, explained the media's ‘corruption’ with one screenshot. 

“The corrupt corporate media summed up in 2 headlines, in the same outlet, by the same reporter, published just 10 days apart,” he said on Twitter. 

CNN's Brian Stelter, who pushed the Russia hoax for years (and was even called out by The Washington Post recently for it), sought to explain the trust issue last month after the Gallup survey came out. Needless to say, critics panned his reasoning.
