Confidence is Low

I've been having trouble finding great spots to share with you all - so I figured I'd start a discussion.

A recent Gallop poll says confidence in television news is at an all-time low.  You can see the article here:

So what role do you think promo plays in all of this? 
Have the scare tactics and general BS that shows up in topicals hurt news? 
Are we doing a good enough job of marketing the values of our product to viewers? 
Is news mostly to blame?  A combo?
How does the Daily Show, Weekend Update, etc play into it?

Let's hear your thoughts.
