President Trump early Sunday said mainstream media companies have “lost cred,” pointing to a recent poll that found almost half of voters think the media make up stories about him, reports The Hill.
“It is finally sinking through. 46% OF PEOPLE BELIEVE MAJOR NATIONAL NEWS ORGS FABRICATE STORIES ABOUT ME. FAKE NEWS, even worse!” Trump tweeted. “Lost cred.”

A Politico/Morning Consult poll released last week found that 46 percent of voters believe the media creates bogus stories about President Trump.
Barely 1 out of 3 disagree and fewer than 1 out of 5 are undecided.
The vast majority of Republicans can see the lies the media spews about Trump, while 65% of Democrats prove how brainwashed they are, and believe the propaganda perpetrated by the media. 1 in 5 Democrats have gotten over their kool-aid addiction and understand the media publishes lies.
The poll was conducted after Trump went after media companies in a series of tweets, saying that their broadcast licenses should be challenged and potentially revoked.
“Network news has become so partisan, distorted and fake that licenses must be challenged and, if appropriate, revoked,” Trump wrote on Twitter. “Not fair to public!”
Trump also called reporters at some news networks “fiction writers” in a tweet last Tuesday.
