The most trusted source of information in the survey was television, which scored 66 percent among respondents.

Well, that makes me want to cry.

Poor little fishy just wanted to swim around in its barrel in peace.

This was on Editor & Publisher, eh? One out of two ain’t bad I guess.

Editor OR Publisher.

So, E&P hires special people to do their writing. What’s the big deal? Wal-Mart lets them greet people, why not let them write?

Per Riehl, this “poll” is from a company making its money on TV and newpaper advertising. Fake but accurate?

would like to know how the questions were formatted and what did htey say exactly; that has alot to do with the results

E&P has been doing their level best to put a positive spin on the reality that “Old Media” is in a downhill slide. Good luck with that!

Right . . . and I’ll be more than happy to conduct a poll that will confirm and validate whatever it is you want to hear. These media polls are mathematical garbage and they really need to put them where the sun doesn’t shine.

Must be working in Britain and Europe – they think the BBC is G-d. No wonder the populace is so malinformed and reacts the way it does…

Boo Fricken Who, to this source. I always wanted to say this. I have a slight accent when I speak English, and it would sound funny, if you could hear it :)

Study or no study, reality sets in…
