Fox News Channel is the most trusted—and the least trusted—news network in the nation, according to a new survey, illustrating the divisive and partisan nature of politics across the nation at the moment. …

Fox News, known for being the only major network that doesn’t have a liberal slant, was both the “least trusted” and “most trusted” among those polled by Public Policy Polling in its annual “TV News Trust Poll.” …

The contradictory findings, which polled 800 people, were the result of two separate questions. In the first poll question, participants were given a list of networks, including Fox News, CNN, MSNBC, and PBS, and voted on whether they trusted each network. … In a separate question, PPP asked participants, “Which TV news outlet do you trust the most?” …

Brought to you by The Author Of Confusion.™ Nice trick questions, eh? Fox News was “least trusted” on the former question and “most trusted” on the latter question. PBS actually came in second place, which is really sad.

Bogus poll. They have the BEST ratings. How can they have the LEAST trusted.

Yeah they stink but they make the competition look like pikers they are.

All this shows is how worthless public polling is. Craft the question properly and you can get any answer you want.

Most of my extended family are liberals. They "know" FOX is "rigt wing" and "not a real news organization", despite never having actually watched it.

Let’s put it this way. I trust FOX News MORE than I trust the rest of the alphabets.

“All this shows is how worthless public polling is. Craft the question properly and you can get any answer you want.”

I would be a lot more scared of the results of this poll than you are, as it points to the fact that our country is far gone demographically speaking, and how brainwashed our population now is. I find this extremely frightening. Our people have been dumb downed to the max, and has been infiltrated by foreign immigrants from 3rd world countries who have no vested interest in our way of life. We’re goners.

Fox News. The network of Karl Rove and Geraldo. Oh, very trustworthy.

Dont trust any of the media, including the so-called conservative media like Fox News. They all spew government propaganda. Dont trust anything that comes from the mainstream media, which includes Fox.

Exactly....I do not trust Fox either. It is now as liberal as CNN. Heck...FNC owner Rupert Moredork had Piers Morgan running his newspaper....

Valid point, but do you trust ABC, the Network of Georgie Stephanopolous, chief paid apologist for the klintons; do you trust CBS where the chief wants 0bama to kill off the GOP (could be a good idea?); do you trust NBC, parent of MSNBC where you're guaranteed a "leg tingle" if Chrissy Matthews even hears 0bama mentioned?

The best I've found are BBC America and WealthTV. They don't seem to have an ax to grind.

It illustrates nothing of the sort.

I suspect many of the people who hate FOX news never watch it.

BBC America can be trusted? Really? I confess to not have watched much of it, but after watching the British version there and here, it definitely has a lib agenda.

From what I’ve seen, BBC America merely reports and you don’t get all the “analysis” that tells the weak minded 0bamunists what to think, like what you get from the American media.

"merely reports"

Often that's the problem. As with the alphabet networks, it's not the lies they tell but the truth they hide. Lib media's biggest sin has not been lying to the public but keeping pertinent information that harms liberalism away from the public. Their role as gatekeepers has done a lot more harm than outright falsehoods. I don't trust BBC America to air unpleasant truths any more than the alphabet networks.
