<p>As many have probably seen by now, Gallup released a poll on September 14 that a record-low percentage of the American people trust the media and, naturally, CNN&rsquo;s <em>Reliable Sources</em> on Sunday addressed it, but the 11-minute segment made it another obsessive discussion of Donald Trump&rsquo;s hostility toward them and ignored key factors such as routine bias by omission stories or excusing/ignoring Democratic scandals.</p>

<p><strong>&ldquo;I have a question for you. It&#39;s kind of personal. Do you trust me? Do you trust us in the media? This new data says no. This is a Gallup poll, the most depressing poll I saw this week, that shows only 32 percent of Americans say they trust the media either a great deal or somewhat,&rdquo; </strong>host Brian Stelter began before adding that only 14 percent of Republicans have a shred of trust in the media.</p>
