Most trusted major television news operation in US!

Fox the most trusted name in news?

A new poll asking Americans whether they trust each of the major
television news operations in the country finds that the only one getting a positive review is Fox News.

CNN does next best followed by NBC News, then CBS News, and finally ABC News.

49% of Americans say they trust Fox News to 37% who disagree. Predictably there is a large party split on this with 74% of Republicans but only 30% of Democrats saying they trust the right leaning network.

CNN does next best because it is the second most trusted of Democrats, Republicans, and independents. 39% say they trust it compared to 41% who do not, with 59% of Democrats, 33% of independents and 23% of Republicans saying it carries credibility with them.

The major networks all have the majority trust of Democrats but less than 20% from Republicans. NBC, perhaps because of the ideological bent of MSNBC, does the best among Democrats at 62%. Overall 35% of voters trust it to 44% who do not.

CBS does the worst among Republicans, with 69% distrusting it. A plurality of independents express distrust of all five outlets we tested.

“A generation ago you would have expected Americans to place their trust in the most neutral and unbiased conveyors of news,” said Dean Debnam, President of Public Policy Polling.

“But the media landscape has really changed and now they’re turning more
toward the outlets that tell them what they want to hear.”

More bad news for Obamunists and liberals in general and it’s from a liberal leaning polling organization at that! But no reason to stop hating!

How many times more do people need to be banged on the head before it starts to hurt and they actually wake up!?

I'm still trying to get over the fact that people trust a TV news source.

I remember one episode of O'Reilly had North emphatically advising Gary Condit to resign because North thought Condit was lying about his role in the disappearance of Sandra Levy.
North had previously lied under oath, while dressed in the uniform of the USMC, to Congress and the American people; and was convicted in a criminal court of doing so.

Please explain. I believe if you were born here or become a naturalized citizen you are an American.

Did you read the poll questions? I'll explain if, after reading the actual questions, my comment still leaves you stumped.

I get it now - if you are white you are an "American".

We'll see how FOX fares the next few times Ms. Palin gets that caribou-in-the-snow-machine-headlights look after she's been asked a simple question, like "What newspapers and magazines do you read?".

Nope, that won't happen. Now that everybody is aware of Palin's limited horizon, the script will be adjusted accordingly.

Has anybody ever figured out what kind of sense Bill O'Reilly makes?
