By: Elizabeth Mendes | Gallup

WASHINGTON, D.C. — Americans’ confidence in newspapers fell slightly to 23% this year, from 25% in 2012 and 28% in 2011.

The percentage of Americans saying they have “a great deal” or “quite a lot” of confidence in newspapers has been generally trending downward since 1979, when it reached a high of 51%.

Newspapers rank near the bottom on a list of 16 societal institutions Gallup measured in a June 1-4 survey.
