Arizonans are well acquainted with Fishwrap news

The Washington Examiner, using the provocative headline “Fishwrap: Just 2% of younger Americans trust media to ‘do the right thing,’” reports media limps in dead last among institutions younger voters trust. The Examiner cites a new Harvard University survey.

In the school’s Institute of Politics poll of over 3,000 18-29-year-olds, a miniscule 12 percent said they believe the media do the right thing. A whopping 88 percent said “sometimes” or “never.” Just 2 percent said they trusted the media to do the right thing “all of the time,” and 39 percent said “never.”

Here in Arizona, the daily statewide newspaper (the Periódico de la República de Arizona /Arizona Republic) is an agenda driven, far-left structure, teamed with the local Gannett owned NBC affiliate KPNX News 12. With all pretenses gone, they are now housed in the same building, facilitating their ability to use one another to substantiate their own skew.  This dual deception would be an engrossing study if not for the fact that, working in tandem, they foist the their pet issues on an often unsuspecting consumer base, who trust that the once noble profession of journalism still exists.
