Americans already trust newspapers and television news more than online news, and while trust in papers and TV is rising, trust in internet news is falling, per a new poll from Gallup.

By the numbers: Only 16% of those surveyed in 2017 said they trusted online news "a great deal" or "quite a lot." That's down from 21% in 1999 and 19% in 2014.
