elites trust government more. nobody else does.

An interesting rebuttal of the release of this year’s Edelman Trust Barometer on the PRSA blog by Elliott Schreiber:

These data may be factual for the elite, but they may be the continuing “fuel on the fire” for those who feel they are on the bottom looking up. On the other side of the political spectrum, the Democrats continue focusing on social inequities, and have made many corporations and CEOs their “poster children” for greed. This doesn’t occur without strong support from the electorate.
