Media Credibility Crisis

(L-R) David Zurawik, Howie Kurtz and Joe Concha discuss media credibility crisis. (Fox News screen grab / August 31, 2014)

I love Sunday morning public affairs TV, and I had a chance today to be part of an animated discussion about why the public hates the press.

Here's the video (below) from "Media Buzz" with me and Mediaite columnist Joe Concha as guests, and Howie Kurtz as host.

I was not aware of the Gallup statistic Concha brought to the table about three out of four Americans trusting the press 40 years ago versus the sorry lack of credibility today.

And when I find a way to go off on Chelsea Clinton and NBC News at about the five-minute mark, I want it duly noted that Kurtz introduced the topic -- not me.

(But I thank him for it.)

Check it out, and tell me what you think happened to the press in the past 40 years.
