Even the Americans themselves do not trust the American media.

US Sociological Service Gallup conducted a traditional survey of the country about the confidence of the US population in the American media. It was about trust / distrust news US media. The results were disappointing for US news media.

Even the Americans themselves do not trust the American media.


It turned out that only about 40% of Americans consider the US media to fully, accurately and truthfully present information in the country and the world. This is a record low for all history similar polls. Ten years ago, more than 54% of respondents in the US trusted their media. In the mid-nineties, the level of trust in the news media among US citizens exceeded 60%.

American experts have linked these indicators not to the fact that the news media in America has become less objective, but to the fact that the Internet is actively developing, and US citizens themselves have the opportunity to compare the objectivity of information in different sources.

It is difficult to consider many American publications as objective even after the news was circulated in a number of leading US media that the Malaysian MH-17 was shot down by Russia (Russian troops) over Ukrainian territory. At the same time, the American press disseminated such "information" just a few minutes after it became known about the crash of the Boeing. And this is just a single example of "objectivity." This also includes reports CNN about how in Odessa antimaydan activists "burned themselves", materials The Washington Post, justifying the Nazi symbols of the militants of the battalion "Azov".

        Why be surprised? The worse people live around, the greater the gap with lulling propaganda. And to say that in the USA (in debtor No. 1) everything is not good! A new war in Iraq will not bring a positive effect.
        And the Americans will certainly get into Iraq, otherwise there’s no way to overcome ISIS.
        My heart smells, the Americans there will have to be extremely bad.bully

        The IMF has stopped issuing aid to Ukraine because of Yatsenyuk’s charges.
        The IMF considered unfair accusations of the Prime Minister of Ukraine against him. At one of his speeches, Yatsenyuk said that the West is very weak in helping Ukraine fight the common enemy. He also announced a very slow flow of assistance. The International Monetary Fund sent a letter to Yatsenyuk warning about the impossibility of fulfilling the previously promised assistance in full. The IMF explained this by saying that it’s not sure that Ukraine will be able to pay off its debts. The head of the IMF, Christine Lagarde, said that the Fund does not like how the country implements the anti-crisis support program previously agreed with the IMF. Lagarde does not support the “premature release of additional money” by Ukraine, which will lead to inflation in the country and undermine trade relations between Ukraine and the EU. Also, IMF representatives asked the prime minister to monitor what and where he says.

        With tyrnet, yes ... but their education system, which we also want to introduce (possibly agents), is the environment from which Psaki, Obama, etc., came out, i.e. dummies who do not know how to think objectively or to assess the current situation. We urgently need to return the Soviet education system.

        Sorry, maybe not in the topic but about the media.
        The newspaper Eesti Ekspress decided to play deputies of the parliament. Reporters sent a letter to politicians about the dangers and dangers to life of dihydrogen monoxide. The letter also stated that more than 50 people died from this chemical compound, which is present in food, drinks and is actively used in agriculture.

        For those who have forgotten, we recall that dihydrogen monoxide is plain water. H2O, two hydrogen atoms and one oxygen atom. This compound is written in all chemistry textbooks, a lot of information about it and on the Internet.

        However, Estonian deputies were too lazy to refresh their memory with the help of literature, they simply believed the letter of the journalists. As a result, they became the object of ridicule from the residents of Estonia. Eesti Ekspress quotes from the words of the deputies who decided to respond to the letter.

        "Dihydrogen monoxide is a serious problem. Estonia must be prepared for an outbreak of an epidemic. Plague was the same in its time. First, ten people died, later half of Europe. What if 50 people died today and 50 tomorrow? And I say this not even as a member of the Riigikogu, but as a scientist. I am a professor after all! "said one Estonian people's deputy. He also promised journalists:" Now the state will take care of this. "

        Another MP Erki Nool said: “Dihydrogen monoxide is a gigantic problem that needs to be dealt with right away. If XNUMX people die from one chemical compound in Estonia a year, you need to act immediately. Moreover, I will say that this year dihydrogen monoxide has killed more people. than killed for all the missions to which Estonia has participated since the restoration of independence. "

        It is worth noting that only two deputies admitted that they do not know what dihydrogen monoxide is. Only one stated that it is a water formula. The rest of the Estonian deputies seriously considered the question of how to protect the population from water.

        Psaka is very expensive, the US State Department simply scornfully scoffs at the whole world by appointing such an idiot with a talking head, or they (the president, secretary of state and the team) themselves are the same as she, and the real puppeteers manage the backstage.

      I’m not my friend, and you’re not my son.
      Firstly, I do not recommend "smoking" in Thailand, the Thais themselves will surrender, since according to the laws, the "surrender" of a drug user receives $ 10000 from the state, and the "smoker" will be "closed" for 70 years, ours are already in a Thai prison.
      Secondly, you do not need to think that everyone in the West is stupid and distant, I talked with doctors from England and people are more than reasonable, in general, do not judge by yourself.

    Why are Americans called pin .. themselves
    Pin .. the Americans themselves were nicknamed the Serbs. in Serbo-Croatian - a penguin. A complete set of Americans laying out weighs about 40 kg. So they walk like penguins - it’s just hard for them to carry it all. And they can’t take it off. The fact is that in the American army there is a rule: if a soldier is injured, and with him there is no full equipment, then FIG him, not insurance. Licking the wounds will be for their hard-earned, and this is expensive. The Americans, of course, were offended. Therefore, at a meeting in 1999, the commander of Russian peacekeepers in Kosovo, General Yevtukhovich said: "Comrade officers, I ask you not to call pin ... owls" pin ... yourself, "they are very offended by this." The nickname has taken root and now all Americans are called pin ... by themselves.

    The truth is hard to hide. It may come to the point that the population "gut" will sense that something is wrong.
    It would be interesting to know how the population of Ukraine relates to their media information. After all, Dr. Goebbels is broadcasting from the graves. So many noodles have never been heard.
