Study: Fox News Once Again Most Trusted And Least Trusted TV News Organization

Public Policy Polling has released its annual poll on TV news, and the results are in line with the last few years of polling… with some changes.

Once again, Fox News Channel is by far the most trusted TV news outlet, according to respondents. It is also by far the least trusted TV news outlet, with a plurality of people naming it to both groups. Political persuasion had a lot to do with that, with Republicans overwhelmingly saying it was the mot trustworthy news outlet, and Democrats overwhelmingly saying it was the least trustworthy.

That said, PPP says that trust in FNC is at an all-time low since it started doing the poll four years ago.

Other takeaways: PBS has the most bi-partisan support, with a majority of Democrats saying that it is trustworthy, and a plurality of Republicans (after FNC is excluded) saying that it is trustworthy. Democrats also found every news outlet other than FNC to be more trustworthy than not trustworthy.
