Fox News, the News Most Trusted Name in News


Move over CNN, according to a new poll there is a new “Most Trusted Name in News” sheriff in town.


According to a new Public Policy Polling nationwide survey, FOX News was the most trusted name in news.  Isn’t that interesting. The very network that the Obama Administration has railed on for not being a real news outlet, 49% of Americans trusted Fox News, a full 10% more than any other news network.

Fox is the most trusted television news network in the country, according to a new poll out Tuesday.

A Public Policy Polling nationwide survey of 1,151 registered voters Jan. 18-19 found that 49 percent of Americans trusted Fox News, 10 percentage points more than any other network.

Thirty-seven percent said they didn’t trust Fox, also the lowest level of distrust that any of the networks recorded.

There was a strong partisan split among those who said they trusted Fox — with 74 percent of Republicans saying they trusted the network, while only 30 percent of Democrats said they did.

CNN was the second-most-trusted network, getting the trust of 39 percent of those polled. Forty-one percent said they didn’t trust CNN.

The most Trusted Name in News poll findings: (Trusted/Not Trusted)

  1. FOX News – 49%/37%
  2. CNN – 39%/41%
  3. NBC/MSNBC – 35%/41%
  4. CBS – 32%/46%
  5. ABC – 31%/46%

As Hot Air stated, this poll really should have been released last week and woulkd have truly made it the best week EVAH! However, drip, drip, drip … the bad news keeps pouring in for the Obama Administration.

It appears that the Obama White House is losing yet another battle with the American public, this time it’s Fox News. As News Busters appropriately states regarding the manner in how Obama and his minions have dealt with Fox News …

Kind of makes members of the Obama administration who regularly depict Fox as not being a real news organization look somewhat foolish, doesn’t it?

      The Obama administration is foolish. They don’t like Fox News because Fox News is fair & balanced and does not drink the Obama Messiah kool-aide.

      It’s good to see more people are starting to see what the MSM is really about and are turning to Fox News for REAL NEWS and not just what Obama’s administration wants you to hear.

      How’s that Hope & Change working out for you imbeciles that voted for this Community Organizer? Got buyers remorse yet? How’s that kool-aide tasting about now? Probably pretty bitter.

      I agree but … is the writing on the wall? Is it just a matter of time?

      Think about it. Weeks prior to the last election … Glen Beck’s voice of Obama opposition was silenced. Lou Dobbs is no longer the lone voice of reason. What was/is going on behind the scenes at CNN? Why do the majority of media outlets possess a liberal bias.



      Venezuelans protest removal of anti-Chavez TV
      Mon., Jan. 25, 2010

      CARACAS, Venezuela – Police fired tear gas and plastic bullets at thousands of university students Monday, breaking up a protest against President Hugo Chavez’s government forcing an opposition channel off cable TV services.

      At least six demonstrators and a journalist were treated for injuries.

      Demonstrations erupted over the telecommunications agency ordering cable companies to drop Radio Caracas Television Internacional early Sunday. RCTV had defied new rules requiring local cable channels to carry mandatory programming, including some of Chavez’s speeches.

      Yep…#1 Cable show PEROID on cable..takes #1 spot from USA…LOL

      I guess it goes to show who the VAST MAJORITY of Americans think who is telling the truth.

      We all know MSNBC is an Obama and left wing lunatic shill.

      We know CNN is a joke with the flamer Anderson Cooper.

      Look, Fox sets it straight.

      It’s amazing how insane liberals are right now that their little left wing plan will not come to fruition because they are VASTLY outnumbered.

      Go jump ship with the rest of your liberal arse wipes.

      Single items throw the ‘Progressives’ for a loop.

      us ‘stupid’ folks take in Fox so’s we can get ‘more
      stupider’. Those high falutin’ pointy-headed elite
      ‘Progressives’ ought to be happy ’bout us’uns

      Trusted/Not Trusted……..

      Viewing Audience vs. Minimal Viewing Audience:

      In the land of TV, the MSM & what Americans are watching “most” for their news source—
      Nielsen Ratings = $$$$ and that’s the bottom line. Neilsen Rating totals and their corresponding numbers do not lie.
