This Just In

January 28, 2010

In BREAKING news, people like Fox better than all the other news networks:

Americans do not trust the major tv news operations in the country- except for Fox News.

Our newest survey looking at perceptions of ABC News, CBS News, CNN, Fox News, and NBC News finds Fox as the only one that more people say they trust than distrust. 49% say they trust it to 37% who do not.

CNN does next best at a 39/41 spread, followed by NBC at 35/44, CBS at 32/46, and ABC at 31/46.

What’s actually interesting about this is the failure to even include MSNBC in the conversation.  Either interesting, or…a big backhand to the face:

NBC is the most popular choice among Democrats at a 62/17 spread. Although ‘NBC News’ was the entity named in the question it’s possible respondents could have been lumping MSNBC in with it given the good numbers on the left.

Well, okay, maybe MSDNC isn’t as bush league as PPP makes it out to be.  Still, I’ll be shocked if anybody is surprised by this—I bet the FNC haters simply chalk it up to the insanity of the “conservatives” or the fact that the idiots who watch news on the teevee instead of reading it on their oh-so-informative-blogs just love propaganda.  I personally hate having people tell me what the news is (I’d rather find out for myself), but the actual news programs on Fox (Brett Baier, Shepard Smith) are pretty good as far as I can tell.  They’re certainly a lot better than CNN, where they do “investigative journalism” by trying to make the freaker-outers look stupid or pit partisan apologists against one another and have them yell at each other.

It’s becoming painfully obvious that those who hate Fox News don’t actually hate the news on the network.  They hate Glenn Beck, Bill O’Reilly, and Sean Hannity.  Sorry to say, but that’s not news.  You stay classy, fellas.
