PRINCETON, N.J., June 17 (UPI) -- Fewer than a fourth of Americans have confidence in newspapers, the lowest level in five years, a Gallup poll has indicated.
The poll found only 23 percent of those surveyed had a "great deal" or "quite a lot" of confidence about what they read in newspapers, Gallup reported Monday.
That's a drop from 25 percent in 2012 and 28 percent in 2011.
The poll, which began in 1974, recorded its lowest level of confidence, 22 percent, in 2008
