Public perception of US media at all-time low

The Pew Centre has been monitoring US attitudes to MSM for a couple of decades, and finds that public trust of media is at a 20 year low, fuelled by Democratic/Republic feuding. Thus Fox gets high ratings from Republicans/conservatives, low from Democrats/liberals, and vice versa for the New York Times. One of George Bush’s unhappy legacies is that his red meat, Democrats are liars approach to public debate has poisoned the well of public opinion, as coverage of the US “debate” over health care demonstrates.
