Feldman and Began reported a survey they conducted on social media that concerns
the levels to which the public trusts the media. The result was that only 6% of people trust the
media. The survey was conducted on Facebook and twitter. Facebook showed that 92% of the
users did not trust the mass media. 2000 adults were considered, with 6% admitting total
trust, 52% indicating minimal trust and 41% declaring no trust. The reasons for the distrust
was not focused on, but some few individuals pointed out on the first ruling of the supreme
court on Obamacare was totally inaccurate, and a spiral cases of campus rapes that was found
to be untrue. They go ahead to describe that such distrust is due to few practices that had been
conducted by reckless individuals in the journalism industry (Swanson & Feldman, 6th June,
It is notable that the article has taken very touching topic. I noted the shallowness of
the topic. It is constricted to the question of trust. It also fails to hold the reasons accountable
for the mass distrust. On the other hand, I note that the topic has some level of
discontinuation. It is not a ‘true’ or ‘false’, or rather, discrete topic. It has very many levels.
Some members of the community trust totally, others trust decimally, other trust moderately,
others trust just beyond moderate. Others don’t trust at all. There is a scale, which was not
considered. Instead, only three levels of trust were considered (total trust, slight trust and no
trust at all).
Bias in the article
The type of bias in this population is mainly bias by section of source. The
information was obtained from Facebook and twitter. This two platforms cannot justify any
information, since they are similar, and serve a similar type of population; the digital
population. The population that is out of this kind of online excitement is more interested in
media news. They have a better chance to watch news on TV, listen to radios, and read print
press news. For this case, the media interact more with the population that was left out during
the Feldman’s survey. There is also bias by spin. The reporters have interpreted one side of
the topic of concern; ‘who trusts the media?’ They could have given the other side a try to
give the report a benefit of doubt. A valuation of ‘who doesn’t trust the media? Was also an
essence, if they were to eliminate the bias. Bias through spin is also known as bias through
The article embraces allusion as a style to relay message. The names of violators who
have caused the disgrace of distrust of journalists by the public are left out. It is clear that the
people are known by name, but are left very anonymous. Also, all surveys conducted in
today’s world are supposed to keep the respondents anonymous. Another style is hyperbole.
The reporters make the situation look so bad, that only 6% trust the media on the heading, yet
through deeper reading, it is found that there is a 52% that also trust the media, but sparingly.
