Fox News' Credibility At 'Record Low': PPP Poll

Source: Huffington Post

Fox News' credibility has fallen 9 percent in the past two years, according to new Public Policy Polling (PPP) results released on Wednesday.

The annual poll asks participants to rate their trust in multiple networks including Fox News, MSNBC, CNN, PBS, Comedy Central, ABC News, CBS News and NBC News. According to PPP's press release:

Just like its actual ratings, Fox News has hit a record low in the four years that we've been doing this poll. 41% of voters trust it to 46% who do not. To put those numbers into some perspective the first time we did this poll, in 2010, 49% of voters trusted it to 37% who did not.

Just like last year, researchers also found that Fox News is both the least trusted and most trusted network when compared to the other networks in the survey. Thirty-four percent said they trust Fox News the most, while 39 percent said they trust it the least.

to start with.

think Fox is the only unbiased news in the so called mainstream.

2. That's the problem! The ones that trust them, trust them blindly and have no clue how

badly they are being misled. They will not listen to anyone that talks negatively about Fox because Fox has conditioned them into having bunker mentality!

6. What was bush's lowest approval rating?

25%. That's your number. Remember, the IQ is built around an average of 100. 50% are above, 50% are below, and of course, half of those are really below.

4. Fox News is anything but news

This media outlet has no objective news standards. It is a money making venture generating income from a specific target market segment that either doesn't know or doesn't care if the shit they transmit has anything to do with reality. This corporation doesn't report news, it feeds hate and hate groups.

5. Strange results show how polarizing Fox is:

Which TV news outlet do you trust the most:
ABC News, CBS News, CNN, Comedy Central,
Fox News, MSNBC, NBC News, or PBS?
11% ABC
6% CBS
12% CNN
5% Comedy Central
34% Fox
8% MSNBC
5% NBC
13% PBS
7% Someone else/Not sure

Working from the same list of choices, which
TV news outlet do you trust the least?
5% ABC
5% CBS
13% CNN
12% Comedy Central
39% Fox
14% MSNBC
3% NBC
1% PBS
9% Someone else/Not sure

8. Shows that one network is cleary identified in the "left-right" divide.

I hardly consider them a network at all. They are really just the media wing of the republican party.

That's the cash cow that pays for Fox News to exist.
Every time you watch The Simpsons, you are paying Sean Hannity's salary.

They watch it because it validates their warped world view and they don't care if it's true.

11. To be fair, there is only one network in that survey that was trusted more than distrusted

Go see for yourself. I won't spoil the results.

http://www.publicpolicypolling.com/pdf/2011/PPP_Release_National_206.pdf

And other than that one trustworthy network, Faux was trusted about the same as the others.

That is a more important finding than the fact that Faux has slid. ALL commercial networks are distrusted. And for good reason.

we lived half of last year caring for my dying father in law. He died 4 days after the election. I'm sure he died believing Rmoney had won.

28. What This Poll Actually Shows

Is how the 4th estate had surrendered their status as the 4th estate and have become the mouth piece for one of the political parties so rather than measuring trust it measures party affiliation. No surprise their. The only surprise in there was Comedy Central where maybe it did measure trust rather than party affiliation or not enough watch it for the number to be accurate. The poll did look to over measure older people that are more white and more liberal than the general population.

29. MSNBC is not the mouthpiece for one party.

It has both very Democratic and very Republican hosts on different shows. The evening shows are more Democratic. The rest of the day it's more Republican toward half/half.

CNN is Republican for the most part with a few Democrats. Same for the rest of the networks.

msnbc is left leaning and very Democratic just like Fox is very Republican. msnbc is not seen as trustworthy by most people. It's ok to admit it.

No. It is not left leaning during the morning and parts of the day.

It is Democratic-leaning in the evening. That is left of the Republicans, but not left in terms of the world.

36. This is an interview with David Schuster who is now with MSNBC but was with Fox News.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?client=mv-google&hl=en&gl=US&v=BzZMdlgVZl8&nomobile=1

It explains the difference between Fox News and MSNBC from the point of view of a reporter who tries to report the facts presenting more than one opinion on an issue regardless of his personal issue. He explains why, in terms of the strategies and principles of the news reporting, Fox News is not at all as objective in its reporting as is MSNBC.
