Media distrust reaches ‘new high’
You have been telling us this for years: the mass media is just plain wrong on life and family issues. That’s why you keep coming back to LifeSiteNews.
But it turns out you aren’t the only ones who are dissatisfied.
A recent Gallup poll has revealed that distrust in the media has hit a “new high,” with 60% of people having little or no trust in mainstream media!
I know what you’re thinking: At last, people “get it!” They finally understand that the media just can’t be trusted.
For an alternative media outlet like ours, this is encouraging news. Because the more people understand the problem with the mainstream media, the more they will be open to seeking the truth in alternative media such as LifeSiteNews.
Maybe that’s why our traffic levels have been so high this year – by far and away the highest in our history!
And maybe that’s why famed Catholic author and painter Michael O’Brien told our staff at our annual meeting this year that he believes LifeSiteNews is on the verge of a “quantum leap” in terms of reach and influence.
We feel it too. Big things are happening. People are craving honest, genuinely professional reporting of the news.
Help us continue to offer the “alternative” news that people need!

The large news agencies long ago traded in their journalistic principles in exchange for money, power and self-serving liberal ideologies. Too often they are simply the mouthpieces of a small number of extremely wealthy individuals and manipulative special interest groups.
But here at LifeSiteNews, things are very different.
It is you who keep our organization going and you whom we serve. And we have no agenda other than to make sure you are equipped with accurate, totally reliable information about the most important issues in the world – life, family and all the related cultural issues.
You share our reports with your families and our friends. You pray for our staff and our mission, and you encourage us to dig harder to report the whole truth on difficult stories.
And it is you who provide the funds allowing us to doggedly pursue the truth in places others dare not go.
LifeSiteNews is your news service.
It’s ultimately up to our readers whether or not we make that “quantum leap” to the next level! Without your support we wouldn’t even exist, let alone be providing this unique news service to millions of people every month!
So are you with us? Are you ready to make the leap?
If so, please consider making a donation to this truth mission today.

P.S. The latest Gallup poll shows that trust in the mainstream media has never been lower! With your help, we are ready and very willing to step up and take an even larger role in reporting all the news that is needed for the public to make the most informed decisions on the key issues of our day.
