This is great news.
Not as good news as you think. If you look at the trust numbers they are close to even. The reason Fox News looks higher than the rest is because if added together (CNN and MSNBC) they are about 34 percent to Fox News 39 percent.
There’s a problem with that.
Most people don’t look at CNN and MSNBC as being the same source. They look at CNN as CNN, and MSNBC as MSNBC. They don’t trust either of them.
It’s us conservatives who look at all of the media as one big liberal establishment.
^^^^^^^^^^^The reason Fox News looks higher than the rest is because if added together (CNN and MSNBC) they are about 34 percent to Fox News 39 percent.^^^^^^^^^^
So what happens if you added the trust together of all of americans newspapers, plus the cable drive bys, and the broadcast drivebys?
Think you could get to about 80% trust?
