Skip to comments.MSNBC the Least Trusted TV News Source Among All Americans
Posted on 06/10/2014 10:51:05 AM PDT by EveningStar
Every news network likes to claim the mantle of the most trusted name in news, and a new Brookings and Public Religion Research Institute poll seeks to demonstrate who actually does and does not deserve that claim. Among many insights we can take from the survey, perhaps the most interesting is that, among all TV news sources, MSNBC is identified as most trusted by the fewest people.

I give them a negative rating...
-168 and sinking
Just a few of the MSNBC losers....
Michael SavageDuring the spring and early summer of 2003, MSNBC featured a weekend talk show hosted by conservative radio host Michael Savage. In July of that year, Savage responded to a prank caller on his show by calling him a “pig” and a “sodomite”, and telling him he “should get AIDS and die.” Savage’s show was canceled and Savage was fired from the channel shortly afterward (with some reports placing the termination immediately after the episode in question ended).
Don ImusIn early April 2007, Don Imus, whose radio show Imus in the Morning was simulcast on MSNBC for over ten years, described members of the Rutgers University women’s basketball team as “some nappy-headed hoes.” The comments sparked outrage, as many considered them to be racist and sexist. After sponsors began to withdraw advertisements from the show, MSNBC canceled the simulcast. Imus, as well as NBC News, apologized to the Rutgers Basketball team for the remarks. The television simulcast of Don Imus’ program later moved to RFD-TV and now airs on the Fox Business Network.
Keith OlbermannOn November 5, 2010, MSNBC President Phil Griffin suspended Olbermann indefinitely without pay for contributing $2,400 (the maximum personal donation limit) to each of three Democratic candidates during the 2010 midterm election cycle. Contributions to political campaigns, under NBC News policy, are not allowed without prior permission. On November 7, 2010, Olbermann posted a thank you message to supporters via Twitter. That same day, MSNBC announced that he would be back on the air starting on November 9.
Two weeks later, Griffin announced the suspension of Joe Scarborough for the same offense, as the Morning Joe host had donated $4,000 to Republican candidates in Florida. Like Olbermann’s suspension, Scarborough’s suspension was brief, and he returned to the airwaves on November 24. On January 21, 2011, MSNBC announced that Olbermann would host his final show that same night.
Martin BashirHost Martin Bashir resigned after making a controversial comment about Sarah Palin. On November 15, 2013, Bashir criticized Sarah Palin for comments that she made comparing the Federal debt to slavery. Bashir attempted to counter Palin’s comparison by referencing the cruel and barbaric punishment of slaves described by slave overseer Thomas Thistlewood, specifically a punishment called “Derby’s dose” which involved forcing slaves to defecate or urinate into the mouth of another slave as punishment. Bashir then concluded by saying “When Mrs. Palin invokes slavery, she doesnt just prove her rank ignorance. She confirms if anyone truly qualified for a dose of discipline from Thomas Thistlewood, she would be the outstanding candidate.”
Alec BaldwinAlec Baldwin’s show Up Late with Alec Baldwin was suspended due to a homophobic slur Baldwin made to a photographer in New York City.
No surprise, considering the number of raving loonies they have and have had as broadcasters.
...and they have worked hard to claim this distinction!!!
They are not a “News Source”.
The only investigative reporting they about supermax prisons and how certain people arrived there, “Real Crime Stories” and Chris Hansen:
“Why don’t you take a seat over there. We’ll discuss your desire to prey on underage girls”....
So what?...the idiots still voted for Obama
Ponder seeing that number if you worked at MSNBC. If they had a hint of intelligence and self awareness, maybe they would rethink their approach. But they don't, so they'll just keep being the mouthpiece of a historically corrupt Administration.
At least they can be confident they'll never be audited by the IRS!
And in other breaking news - Water Is Wet!
If MSNBC Says Something Alone in the Forest, Is It Still Stupid?
The biggest turd on the pile of MSM turds.
John stewart...seriously?? Comedy central is a news source???
Five percent of the population. That's a lot of murder and mayhem.
These are the pro-government extremists.. tens of thousands of Americans suffer personal losses and are often injured, maimed, murdered each year
The muggings, knockout game, mob attacks, murders, beatings.. look at the wicked hatred coming out of the White House, the Congress, the MSM, academia against those "who have too much" and how things should be more fair. How "they" stole "the people's" property.
Everyday "victims of the haves and America" are encouraged to react out of being a victim. The employees of the MSM like MSNBC don't have to tell the masses to inflict pain and suffering on the "haves" and take back the "stolen" goods, the masses cheered on by MSNBC, et al. know what to do to get even . . . .
The Ed Show --- Raging Lunatic
Politics Nation w/ Al Sharpton - Racist, Bigot, Anti-Semite
Hardball w/ Chris Matthews -- Spitting Fool
All In With Chris Hayes -- Obama Pajama Boy
The Rachel Maddow Show -- Obama Propaganda Czar
The Last Word w/ Lawrence O'Donnell - Ratings Undetectable
MSNBC isn’t a TV news source it’s a talk show for the liberals.
Brian Williams is so far up Obama’s rear, he cannot see daylight!!! End of story!!!
who is msnbc?
