Fox News the most (and least) trusted

by Greg Krehbiel on 31 January 2014

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.

    Charles Krauthammer said “the genius of Rupert Murdoch and Roger Ailes was to have discovered a niche market in American broadcasting — half the American people.”

    “So while PBS, ABC, CNN and CBS fight for their share of liberal eyeballs, Fox gets almost all the conservatives. ”

    And, of course, all the liberal hate. Except of course for that tiny contingent of Pacifica fans who like to complain about NPR’s right-wing bias, but they don’t really exceed the margin of error.
