"To announce that there must be no criticism of the president, or that we are to stand by the president, right or wrong, is not only unpatriotic and servile, but is morally treasonable to the American public." -- Theodore Roosevelt

Poll: Fox News is the Most Trusted Name in News

Maybe the media using god-like halo photos like this doesn't instill the feeling of objectivity in the American people. Just sayin'.

What? Not MSNBC?! Shocker.

From John Nolte at Breitbart:

Fox News once again found itself at the very top of Public Policy Polling's annual survey of the most trusted news networks in America. A whopping 35% of those polled trust Fox News more than any other television news outlet. Fox even embarrassed second place. PBS earned that spot with only 14%.  
Bringing up the rear are ABC (11%), CNN (9%), CBS (6%), and in dead last with a three-way tie at 3% are NBC, MSNBC, and Comedy Central.  
While Fox News also ranks at the top of the "least trusted" television news networks, the "Fair and Balanced" network only earns that title by 33% of those surveyed. That is a stunning failure for the legions dedicated to marginalizing Fox --which includes Media Matters and all the rest of the mainstream media. MSNBC wins 19% of "least trusted," followed by Comedy Central (11%), CNN (5%), and the rest.  
When asked about trusting or not trusting individual networks. Fox News came in second to PBS with 44/42. CNN stayed even at 40/40 -- proving once again that the "Most Trusted Name In News" is not.

Yeah, CNN started becoming crap not long after Bush was ending his first term. I think they decided to try to lure in The Daily Show crowd. It's been an embarrassment for a lot of years now.

That's sad really, because CNN was my go to news channel all through the '90s and a lot of the aughts. They really were "the most trusted name in news" for me back then. Not anymore.
