A new study by the American Press Institute and the Associated Press-NORC Center for Public Affairs Research finds that most people who use social media to get news often don't trust the content.

Fewer than 25% of people have a "great deal" of trust for social media as news sources overall, and that number plummets to 12% for Facebook. Overall, Snapchat had highest percentage of people willing to say they don't trust the platform at all.

Why it matters: Around 62% of U.S. adults get news on social media, and according to Pew, 68% of people don't trust the news they see or read, which is the highest distrust rate the U.S. has ever seen. In a separate study, Pew found that the social platforms people intentionally visit the most to get news are Linkedin, Twitter and Reddit, and the sites people stumble upon most to accidentally receive news are Facebook, Instagram and Youtube.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) on Wednesday urged Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) to use a $908 billion bipartisan coronavirus relief framework as a basis for jumpstarting negotiations.

Why it matters: The framework, introduced by a group of bipartisan senators on Tuesday, calls for significantly less funding than Pelosi had previously demanded — a sign that Democrats are ready to further compromise as millions of Americans endure economic hardship.
