Why voters distrust the media party

One thing journalists never like to be reminded of — especially during a federal election campaign — is that the public doesn’t trust us.

In fact, they trust us only slightly more than the politicians we cover.

An Ipsos Reid poll last September found the Canadian media is only considered “extremely trustworthy” by 18% of the public, in the same league as lawyers (16%), auto mechanics (16%) and airport baggage handlers (12%).
