Survey: America’s Most Trusted Brands are USPS, Amazon, Google and PayPal? Only 4% Trust Hollywood!

Although actors and actresses garner endless media coverage — and spend a lot of time telling all of us how they feel about President Trump — Americans don’t trust them.

According to a poll released by Morning Consult, just 4% of Americans trust Hollywood. That’s lower than the number that trust Wall Street (5%) and the U.S. government (7%).

The news media comes in at a dismal 8%.

The nationwide survey found that the most trusted brands in America are: the United States Postal Service; Amazon, Google, PayPal, The Weather Channel, Chick-fil-A, Hershey, UPS, Cheerios, and M&Ms. It is, however, a contest of mediocrity, as no brands were found to be particularly trustworthy, with these 10 brands garnering stamps of approval from just 34-42% of Americans.

But even above those are “your primary doctor” (50%) and the U.S. military (44%).

Americans also believe “extreme weather warnings (36%) and “teachers” (35%).

But Americans do trust two top celebrities… sort of: Tom Hanks came in at 34% and Oprah Winfrey at 27%.

Shockingly (at least to the news media), Trump comes in at 20% on trustability.

Gen Zers are entirely not drinking the Kool-Aid. The survey found them to be distrustful of all things capitalist: corporate America, brands, and companies. They are also conscious of corporate behavior and likely to not purchase from a reliable company that they feel is run unethically,” Fast Company reported. “This is a stark contrast from the nearly two-thirds of baby boomers who trust most companies as their default position; half support reliable companies regardless of ethics.”

Just 15% of Americans believe that religious leaders will do the right thing, though.

Comedian Ricky Gervais nailed exactly how the world feels about Hollywood in his recent appearance on the Golden Globes.

“If you do win an award tonight, don’t use it as a political platform to make a political speech,” he told the crowd of limousine liberals, always eager to decry climate change as they jet around the world and tan on gas-guzzling super yachts. “You’re in no position to lecture the public about anything, you know nothing about the real world. Most of you spent less time in school than Greta Thunberg. So, if you win, come up, accept your little award, thank your agent and your God — and f*ck off. OK?” Gervais said.

Survey respondents were asked “How much do you trust each brand to do what is right?” They could respond a lot, some, not much, not at all, or don’t know. This ranking is determined by share of “a lot” responses. For example, 42.7 percent (ranked #1) of Gen Z consumers trust Google a lot. 44.2% (ranked #1) of Millenials trust Google alot, 39.1% (ranked #2) of Gen Xers, while Boomers did not have Google in the top 25 of their trusted brands.

PayPal De-Platforms Conservative Street Artist Sabo, Holds His Funds for Six Months

On Monday evening, Sabo, the conservative street artist who is mostly known for his street posters that randomly pop up in California, reported on his Facebook page that he has now been kicked off of PayPal. “Today Paypal canceled my account with all of my money in it,” he announced. “They are holding my funds for the next 6 months.”

PayPal is the money exchanging platform Sabo used to earn income, and this de-platforming hits him hard financially. “I explained to them that I live in a city with 60,000 homeless people and that they are about to make me and my wife join their ranks.”

Last year, Sabo was also de-platformed from Twitter without being given a reason. He gave an exclusive interview to PJMedia’s Megan Fox when it happened.

Sabo posted the following image with his announcement about PayPal.

“My wife had warned me about doing business with PayPal,” the artist told PJM. “I’d constantly tell her that they provided a great service which makes starting an online store easy.”

“I trusted them,” he explained. “I worked in the start-ups for many years and it sucks to see what they’ve become. The people of PayPal obviously haven’t taken note of how many once-giants are less than memories now. Their time will come soon as well. When it comes to the transfer of money, trust is paramount.”

“They’ve lost that trust with me,” he added. “We are living in Orwellian times.”

Sabo insists in his Facebook post that he will keep fighting to be able to earn a living. “We’ll find an alternative way to generate income and I’m sure they will work to hit that as well. And then we’ll find another.” He also said he expected this would happen. “2020 is right around the corner and they are doing everything they can to silence our side. At least they finally did it so now I can move on.”

PayPal Reveals that they are Censoring Groups With Help from Leftist, Anti-Christian SPLC

The CEO of PayPal revealed the multi-billion dollar service partners with the leftist organization Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) to decide who should be blacklisted from their company. Using “company corporate values” as their defense, PayPal has taken intentional steps to deny access to conservatives. It’s all a big cause for concern for Christians because […]
