MSNBC … The Least Trusted Name in TV News … FOX NEWS, The Most Trusted

 

Go figure, who would have thunk it?

A recent Brookings and Public Religion Research Institute poll seeks to name the most “Trusted name in News”. Needless to say, MSNBC was not it, in fact they were the least trusted name in TV news. Fox News Channel was ranked as the most trusted name overall with 25% of respondents. The Washington Free Beacon reports, MSNBC was also the worst choice among independents (4 percent) and moderates (5 percent), getting thumped by Fox News in both categories.

Among all Americans surveyed, only 5% identify MSNBC as their “most trusted” TV news outlet, while Fox (25%), broadcast networks (23%), and CNN (21%) make up the top three. Now, of course, the argument could be made that MSNBC’s just trusted by the fewest because of exposure (CNN and Fox are much bigger household names; and broadcast networks are still the dominant news outlets in the ratings).

Also interesting is the fact that despite Jon Stewart‘s reputation as being the news source for younger demographics, among all age ranges, he only garners 8% of people’s “most trusted” label.
