"Has the U.S. motto become ‘In Nothing We Trust’?" PBS NewsHour 2/5/2016


SUMMARY:  Only 19 percent of American trust the government to do the right thing most of the time, according to a recent Pew Research poll, down from 77 percent in 1964.  This lack of trust isn’t limited to the government -- Americans today distrust everything from churches to public schools.  Journalist Jeff Greenfield offers an essay on how we became a nation of doubters.
