The so-called mainstream media are rejoicing now that Joe Biden is in the White House.
The Democrat Media Complex put in extra work to drag Biden along the finish line.
But one new survey has CNN shaking in their boots.
The corporate press did a victory lap after pushing Joe Biden into the White House.
Many Democrat journalists openly gloated about suppressing stories that were harmful to Biden.
The near blackout on the Hunter Biden laptop scandal led to a significant number of voters in swing states pulling the lever for Biden when they otherwise would not have.
But the media’s malfeasance has consequences.
According to polling data, public trust in the media is at an all-time low.
“By the numbers: For the first time ever, fewer than half of all Americans have trust in traditional media, according to data from Edelman’s annual trust barometer shared exclusively with Axios. Trust in social media has hit an all-time low of 27%.”
Both Twitter and Facebook suppressed the New York Post’s scoop on Hunter Biden’s “laptop from hell,” as did the Washington Post, NPR, and other major outlets.
“56% of Americans agree with the statement that ‘Journalists and reporters are purposely trying to mislead people by saying things they know are false or gross exaggerations.’”
The Capitol Hill riot is a recent example.
Many outlets have had to walk-back claims that Trump incited the attack after evidence came forward that the rioters had been planning the assault for several weeks.
The New York Times got caught billing an unnamed source as a high-level Trump staffer when he was not.
There are countless examples of media exaggeration and almost all of it flows in one direction.
“58% think that ‘most news organizations are more concerned with supporting an ideology or political position than with informing the public.’”
Perhaps Donald Trump’s greatest achievement as president was exposing just how biased and corrupt the so-called mainstream media are.
Like how CNN recently described Antifa terrorists as “protestors.”

Antifa “protestors” literally killed a man in cold blood in the street, firebombed a courthouse for several weeks, assaulted journalists, and destroyed property in the span of a few months.
Categorizing violent radicals as mere protestors is precisely why media trust is so low.
The people who have been assaulted or have seen their small businesses destroyed know first-hand just what kind of thugs these Antifa members are.
Axios also said:
“When Edelman re-polled Americans after the election, the figures had deteriorated even further, with 57% of Democrats trusting the media and only 18% of Republicans.”
The so-called mainstream media have long since destroyed their credibility with conservatives, now they’re in danger of falling below water with Democrats too.
