A recent survey from The Washington Times found that Americans tend to be less informed than they used to be.
The survey, which asked 1,800 people how they perceive the state of the news, found that in 2017 Americans were less likely to have heard of the term “fake news” than they were two years earlier.
This was true across all age groups.
And while Americans were still more likely to say that the news was not accurate than they had been in the 1990s, the proportion of Americans who said this was down from 50% in 2015 to 45% in 2017.
More from The Post:The Times survey also found that while there were still fewer people saying the news is fake, the percentage of Americans saying the truth about the 2016 election is more important to them than having a news outlet to report on it.
The public’s interest in the “fake” news story may be partly fueled by the Trump administration’s aggressive response to it, according to the survey.
It found that a third of Americans say that they would be more likely than not to tell a friend or relative about the fake news story if the person is willing to be told the truth.
That is the second survey to find that Americans are more likely today to trust what the news tells them than what it actually tells them.
A January survey by the Pew Research Center found that just over half of Americans trust what they see in the news about the country as a whole, while just over one-third said they trust what people in their own community tell them.
In the same survey, Americans were more likely now than they have been in nearly a decade to say the news that has made them uncomfortable in the past has become less so over time.
Just over one in three Americans said that they believe news that they personally believe to be untrue is no longer true.
This new survey also suggests that the “fear” of a “frightening” public may have contributed to Americans’ unwillingness to accept the truth in the years leading up to and during the 2016 presidential election.
The 2016 election campaign, during which the Democratic candidate, Democrat Hillary Clinton, was widely perceived to be dishonest and untrustworthy, created a political climate that was at once intensely personal and intensely partisan, the Times said.
Americans were also less likely in 2017 to have trusted that the country was on the right track, even though they had come to expect this.
And the fear that people have about the news being inaccurate, biased and fake was especially pronounced among white Americans, according the survey results.
