Poll: Public Esteem for Journalists Collapses to 28%

Poll: Public Esteem for Journalists Collapses to 28%

A new Pew poll that examines public esteem of various institutions shows that members of the media have rapidly lost favor with the public since 2009. Four years ago, 38% of adults believed journalists contributed “a lot to society’s well being.” Today, that number is down to 28%. Journalists are rapidly losing favor with women; that number dropped 17 points, from 46% to 29%.

Out of ten professions, including the military, clergy, and artists — journalists sit at the bottom of the pile, ahead of only business executives and lawyers.
