Only 35% of Republicans have at least some trust in national news organizations, according to a June study by the Pew Research Center, down from 70% in 2016.
Meanwhile 78% of Democrats have at least some trust in national news organizations, marking a 43% partisan gap, the largest registered since 2016.
Local new organizations fared better with 66% of Republicans and 84% of Democrats having at least some trust in them.
Social media generated the least trust with 19% of Republicans saying they have a lot or some trust in information from that source versus 34% of democrats.
Earlier studies from Pew have concluded that Democrats and Republicans live in nearly inverse media environments.
