Poll: Fox Most Trusted News Network

Heads must be exploding across the blogosphere right about now and I fully expect the fallout to be felt shortly.

Public Policy Polling finds that Fox News is the most trusted News network, ahead of everyone else by 10 percentage points.

49 percent of Americans trust Fox News with the next highest being CNN is 39 percent.

A Public Policy Polling nationwide survey of 1,151 registered voters Jan. 18-19 found that 49 percent of Americans trusted Fox News, 10 percentage points more than any other network.

Thirty-seven percent said they didn’t trust Fox, also the lowest level of distrust that any of the networks recorded.

There was a strong partisan split among those who said they trusted Fox — with 74 percent of Republicans saying they trusted the network, while only 30 percent of Democrats said they did.

CNN was the second-most-trusted network, getting the trust of 39 percent of those polled. Forty-one percent said they didn’t trust CNN.

Side Note, just because liberal exploding heads amuse me, comes from TVNewser with "Fox News Finishes Week #1 in All of Primetime Cable".

Fox News was the top cable network in primetime last week, averaging the most total viewers between January 18th-24th.
