During an unprecedented period of scrutiny and criticism, news media outlets in the U.S. are dealing with an increasingly skeptical public. According to a recent survey by Gallup for the Knight Foundation, the American people place the most trust in local newspapers, but even then, only 54 percent say have 'a lot' or 'a fair amount' of confidence. Often under fire from the president, national network news and major national newspapers have the confidence of only 52 and 51 percent of the population, respectively. Least trusted are news aggregators (38 percent) and internet-only news websites (36 percent).
