Hope Remains – MSM Most Distrusted “Institution” In Oz

31 Dec

It’s true! Hope does spring eternal!

Keep right on disbelieving, dear reader:

Only one organisation in Australia is viewed, statistically speaking, as totally untrustworthy: the media. The scoop in the 2010 Australian Election Survey, published this week, wasn’t so much that the messenger finished last but that the gap between us and the political institutions we are supposed to hold to account was so wide.

Only 17 per cent of voters polled at the last election had confidence in the press, compared with 53 per cent for the Australian political system, 41 per cent for the public service and 31 per cent for the political parties.

Still a long way to go on disbelief in the political “system”. And in the “parties”.

And sadly, a very long way to go on disbelief in the “Banks and financial institutions”:

But at least we are heading in the right direction with distrust for our mainstream “news” sources.

    That’s a heartening number of us who can think for ourselves, and it’s due in a large part to the availability of real facts on the internet.

    The goons repeating press releases and spin lines as journalism,simultaneously on FTA TV channels,as their “news” and our Aussie Bolshevik Collective’s barracking for the left, must be believed by only the few who have cobwebs where grey matter should reside!

    Factual information from the internet may disappear.

    Tonight brings news of the “Anonymous release of more Stratfor data”


    I was barred from posting this comment:

    “Distrust of government is an alarming new development that may require leaders of nations and scientific organizations to be more candid in addressing evidence of wrongdoing in government funded studies on global climate change, etc.”

    Best wishes for 2011!

    I find it interesting that people rate the armed forces and police so high yet public service so low. Are people not aware that these people are in sections within the public service.
