Poll: Fox News Is The Most Trusted Name In TV News
January 26, 2010 - 7:54 pm

If a survey published Tuesday by Public Policy Polling is to be believed, Fox News is the most trusted name in TV news.

In a national survey of 1,151 registered voters, Fox News was the only news outlet that more respondents trusted than distrusted. Some 49% of those polled said they trust Fox News, compared to 37% who said they didn’t. Not surprisingly, there is a strong partisan split: 74% of those who placed their trust in the conservative-skewing network are registered Republicans.

NBC News, which is likely helped by its liberal-skewing MSNBC affiliation, fared best among Democrats. The survey found 62% of Democrats trust the broadcast network's news.CBS News fared worst among the Republicans (69% distrust it) and independents were generally distrustful of all five news sources they were polled on: Fox News, CNN, ABC News, NBC News and CBS News.

“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 the left-leaning polling firm, in a statement. “But the media landscape has really changed and now they’re turning more toward the outlets that tell them what they want to hear.”

The bound-to-be-controversial poll results come on the heels of Glenn Beck taking second place in a recent Harris Poll of America's favorite TV personalities (Oprah is No. 1) and his host network rounding out the week with its highest prime-time ratings in more than a year. Thanks to the closely watched U.S. Senate election in Massachusetts, the right-leaning cable network ranked No. 1 among all cable networks with 3.2 million tuning in. Still more impressive, its coverage of the Tuesday night election drew more than 6 million viewers in prime time.

RE: Poll: Fox News Is The Most Trusted Name In TV News
It never ceases to amaze me how people keep getting herded back and forth with this left-right BS. 8 years a laughing stock for it's heavy-handed blatant propaganda. The same people still run it and shill for the company and all it takes is a new administration and it's flying high. How people can't see through that is beyond me.

Edit: I would add "Most Trusted Name in TV News" is as valuable a distinction as "Favorite Natural Disaster"
