News Media’s Improved Image Proves Short-Lived This report by The Pew Research Center for the People and the Press claims that the “favorable glow from the media’s post-9/11 performance has completely disappeared. As the media’s focus has shifted away from terrorism, Americans regard news organizations with the same degree of skepticism as they did in the 1990s.” Maybe so, but I’m skeptical about making strong, specific claims based on polls.
