As reported by US News, The Wall Street Journal, and The Pew Research Center:
"In a stunning rejection of network news and nightly news anchors, cable news, driven by the Fox News Channel and mouthy Bill O'Reilly, is now the top most trusted source -- by a mile. In a new poll from Boston's Suffolk University, more than a quarter of the nation says Fox is tops when it comes to who they trust the most, and O'Reilly is the most believable.
"The key finding is that network news is dying. Some 28 percent of likely voters say that they trust Fox News the most, followed by CNN at 18 percent. After that, the trust in TV news nose dives. NBC was third, at 10 percent, MSNBC fourth at 7 percent, CBS and ABC tied at fifth with just 6 percent. The remaining 25% are divided up at less than 1% each among local media outlets and Internet news sources."
Fox News: 39% Republican, 33% Democratic, 22% Independent
Radical Left-wing hate sites contend that Fox News has only 3 million viewers, but this is a bald-faced lie. Fox is a 24-hour news channel where many different viewers go for at least 60 minutes throughout the day; so, although the average viewership is around 3 million at any one time, Neilsen Media Research reports that in an average month the number of individual viewers who tune into it for news is a whopping 85 MILLION.
The so-called "Fox-debunking examples" shown in YouTube videos make no distinction between hard-news reporting and opinion-based programming. When a Hard-news Anchor interviews someone and simply asks incisive questions, the responses are aired regardless of the position taken. When Commentators clash their personal opinions against those of guests, this too is aired regardless of who seems to "win" the discussion. If someone has to resort to lies and distortions to support their agenda, what does this say about its merit, as well as its advocates' morals and ethics?
