For the third consecutive year, Fox News was found to be both the most trusted and least trusted news network, according to a new Public Policy Polling poll.
The poll found 35% of Americans trust Fox News more than other TV outlets, with PBS (14%), ABC (11%), CNN (10%), CBS (9%), MSNBC and Comedy Central tying at 6%, and NBC (3%) rounding out the list.
The poll suggested Fox’s wide margin as most trusted is in large part due to overwhelming Republican viewership, with 69% of Republicans citing it as their most trusted news network (MSNBC was tied for fourth place among Democrats most trusted list).
FNC also leads the way as least trusted: 33% ranked it as their least trusted network, followed by MSNBC (19%), Comedy Central (14%), CNN (11%), ABC (5%), CBS (4%), and a tie for NBC and PBS at 2%.
