A new survey by the Poynter Institute and YouGov on trust in the media shows that 63% of Trump supporters agree with the president that the media are an “enemy of the people,” and nearly half — 44% — of Americans in general believe the news media “fabricate stories about President Trump more than once in a while.” 

You’re Fake News! The 2017 Poynter Media Trust Survey was released on Nov. 29.  According to the report’s executive summary, the survey is designed “to gauge the public’s support for the media in these difficult times.”
