Do you trust Fox News?

A new poll says many do.

http://blogs.forbes.com/bizblog/2010/01/26/poll-fox-news-is-the-most-trusted-name-in-tv-news/

f a survey published Tuesday by Public Policy Polling is to be believed, Fox News is the most trusted name in TV news.

In a national survey of 1,151 registered voters, Fox News was the only news outlet that more respondents trusted than distrusted. Some 49% of those polled said they trust Fox News, compared to 37% who said they didn’t. Not surprisingly, there is a strong partisan split: 74% of those who placed their trust in the conservative-skewing network are registered Republicans.

  • Yeah, but not just based on hearing then believing. I always research and find alternative views and articles to back what they say. But with looking into different news reports through news networks (and I am saying NEWS NOT COMMENTATORS!) FOX usually has faster updates, and less "fluff" as we called it in college than some other networks.

  • No I do not. I don't trust any of the MSM for that matter, but certainly not Fox. If anyone would just report the news instead of speculation i.e. "terrorist fist jab" then I would have more faith in cable news.
