Tiny two percent of younger Americans trust official media

A recent survey conducted by Harvard University showed that younger Americans do not trust the media.

The survey, Institute of Politics poll, was conducted among 3,000 young people aged between 18-29. Only 12 percent of them said they trust local media.

Eighty-eight percent of the polled said that they "sometimes" or "never" trust the media. Just 2 percent said they trusted the media to do the right thing "all of the time," and 39 percent said "never."

The poll has revealed a downward spiral as fewer younger American citizens read traditional media, such as newspaper and magazines.
