What Explains Falling Confidence in the Press? Help me figure it out. Here are five explanations, each of them a partial truth.
That is my question here. Journalists were becoming better educated. They were more likely to go to journalism school, my institution.
During this period, the cultural cachet of being a journalist was on the rise. Newsrooms were getting bigger, too: Journalism was becoming less of a trade, more of a profession. Most people who study the press would say that the influence of professional standards, such as we find in this codewas rising.
So the puzzle is: More of a profession, more educated people going into journalism, a more desirable career, greater cultural standing although never great pay bigger staffs, more people to do the work … and the result of all that is less trust.
Let me be clear: Here are some possible answers. I am going to keep this post open for a week and add the best ideas I get to my list.
When you put my trust puzzler to professional journalists and I have they tend to give two replies: All institutions are less trusted.
The press is just part of the trend. In66 percent had a great deal or a fair amount of trust. If these other institutions are screwing up, or becoming less responsive, then journalists should be the ones telling us about it, right?
Suppose the Catholic Church fails scandalously to deal with child abusers among its priests. If journalists help expose that, confidence in the press should rise. Big institutions are less trusted.
Public service journalism is supposed to be a check on those institutions. The second answer I hear the most from journalists is that bad actors—especially the squabblers on cable television, and the tabloid media generally—are undermining confidence in the press as a whole.
Go here for some evidence of that. The most visible news people are being mistaken for the whole institution. The conservative movement has an answer to my question, which they try to drill into my head whenever they can: The United States is a conservative country center-right, as radio host Hugh Hewitt likes to say but most journalists are liberals.
Even though they claim to practice neutrality, they weave their ideology into their reporting and people sense this bias. The result is mistrust. The problem has gotten worse since What else do you need to know? The United States is a divided country… The political left has a different answer to my question.
In basketball, some coaches will as a matter of course complain that the referees are favoring the other team. Their hope is to sow confusion in the minds of the officials, and perhaps get the benefit of the doubt on some calls.
Working the refs is indifferent to the actual distribution of judgment calls. Coaches who believe in the method use it regardless of whether the refs have been unfair or generous to their side. The aim is to intimidate. This amounts to a distortion of the picture presented to the public.
From that distortion, mistrust follows. But is it really true that the left does not know how to complain about bad calls, while the right screams at every opportunity? This complicates the case. My own theory, which I do not think of as complete or even adequate.Press Release You are the PIO of the police department for a small, close-knit town in rutadeltambor.com days ago, your department received a missing child report.
