Fox News Most Distrusted Name In News: Poll Finds

Recommended Posts



Fox News is the most distrusted name in news, while PBS is the most trusted, according to a poll by Public Policy Polling.


The study was released on Wednesday. It is the second annual TV news trust poll PPP has conducted. The poll finds that PBS is the most trusted news outlet by a wide margin, with 50 percent of respondents saying they trust it, as opposed to 30 who don't.


Fox News is the second-most trusted network, but also the most distrusted one, with 42 percent trusting it and 46 percent not trusting it. That's as compared to the 43 percent who said they didn't trust CNN, CBS or ABC. But Fox News was one of only two networks that saw its distrust levels increase from last year's study. Last year, 37 percent of respondents said they didn't trust Fox--a nine-point difference from the 2011 poll.

Fox is not a news distributor, it is an entertainment station that uses news as its medium.

Its as real as big time wrestling or Nascar.

Its all about keeping the viewer excited and in their seat for the ad dollars, not putting them to sleep with proper reporting and analysis of the days events.
