BRITS no longer trust the mainstream media and it’s presenters, says a new report.
Britain’s TV newsreaders have seen the biggest fall in trust over the past year.
The likes of fake news pundit Jason Farrell, Kay Burley and Piers Morgan saw the biggest fall in the past year, with trust declining FIVE percentage points from 67% in 2017 to 62% now.
The Ipsos Mori report says trust in TV news hosts “to tell the truth” has fallen by five per cent.
Journalists also are revealed to be among the five least-trusted professions, coming above only ad executives, politicians and Government ministers.
They have dropped by one per cent over the past year and are now trusted by 26 per cent of people to tell the truth, the survey found.
The top five most trusted professions, in descending order, were nurses, doctors, teachers, engineers and professors.
Ipsos Mori interviewed 1,001 adults (aged 15 plus) across Great Britain between 12 and 21 October for the survey.
The fall comes after Brits inundated Britain’s media regulator Ofcom, with over 2,000 complaints about the botched interview on Sky News between Jason Farrell and Tommy Robinson.
The Sky News Interview was exposed as a fake after Mr Robinson published the full uncut interview on social media.
Robinson, 35 accused Sky of “spreading false headlines across the world” and exposed Sky’s blatant bias.
