A new poll says Fox News is the most trusted name in news. And also the least trusted.
35% of Americans say they trust Fox News more than any other TV news outlet, followed by 14% for PBS, 11% for ABC, 10% for CNN, 9% for CBS, 6% each for Comedy Central and MSNBC, and 3% for NBC. …
Fox News also leads the ‘least trusted’ list in our annual poll. 33% give it that designation to 19% for MSNBC, 14% for Comedy Central, 11% for CNN, 5% for ABC, 4% for CBS, and 2% each for NBC and PBS.
I don’t think there’s much mystery here. Fox News is in the enviable position of being the only major conservative network, while there are several liberal networks. So while PBS, ABC, CNN and CBS fight for their share of liberal eyeballs, Fox gets almost all the conservatives.
