Are the news organizations doing their job?

A statistic that has been quoted through-out Best Practices for Newspaper Journalists is that 53% of Americans believe that the press has too much freedom, with many feeling (even in our class) that the news media is not essential to our lives.  While it is hard to argue that we would be better off without the news, I think a large part of this is that the News media is losing credibility with their attempts to reach a larger audience, and they have yet to prove their importance to those 53% of those people polled.  While people who don't stay up-to-date on current events get their news from second and third-hand sources, what is going to happen to our society if less and less people don't trust the news they hear.
