A Morning Consult poll shows CNN’s Jake Tapper is the most mistrusted journalist in America.
The poll surveyed 2,206 adults, has a margin of error of plus or minus two percent, and asked a number of questions about the news media in general and 50 specific American media personalities specifically.
When asked “How much do you trust the following” media personality, 35 percent said of Tapper “not much” or “not at all.” This high level of mistrust for Tapper placed the left-wing CNN anchor in tenth place on a list of the most mistrusted media personalities.
What is notable, though, is that Tapper is only so-called “journalist” on that top ten list.
Sean Hannity (46 percent), Joe Scarborough (41 percent), Mika Brzezninski (40 percent), Stephen Colbert (39 percent), Rachel Maddow (38 percent) Shepard Smith (37 percent), Chris Matthews (37 percent), Tucker Carlson (36 percent), and Don Lemon (36 percent), are all more mistrusted than Tapper. Steve Doocy, Juan Williams, and Lawrence O’Donnell are all tied with Tapper at 35 percent.. – READ MORE
