‘None’ named Most Trusted Political Reporter

Suffolk University conducted anther of its political polls this week. Mostly, the questions were about the candidates for president. But the last two questions, 58 and 59, had to do with the media, including this question:

What political reporter would you say that you trust the most?

Of the 1,070 respondents, the majority, 21% said “Don’t Know.” The next highest percentage at 15% was “None.” So according to this poll, “Don’t Know” and “None” are the most trusted U.S. political reporters.

Then, in what probably has more to do with name recognition that anything else, Bill O’Reilly got the third-most respondents with 95, or 9%; Anderson Cooper was next with 69 or 6%; “Other” got 61 responses, also 6%, then Mike Huckabee — yes Mike Huckabee was deemed “Most Trusted Political Reporter” by 48 people in this poll, or 4%. Brian Williams was right behind with 46 or 4%.

Another question asked:

NBC — 10%

MSNBC — 7%
