Not surprising to me, but they worked hard this election cycle to earn this mantle.

Just 33 percent of those who watch CNN said they trusted the information they're getting, compared to 43 percent for MSNBC. At Fox News, 50 percent said they trust the source.

No surprise there.
CNN, aka the Clinton News Network, did every thing they could to get Hillary Clinton elected.
They fed debate questions and answers to her through their paid commenter Donna Brazil who was also the #2 at The DNC until Debbie Wasserman Schultz got fired for corruption.

They repeatedly reported false polling data showing Hillary Clinton easily beating Donald Trump,
At every turn they trashed Mr. Trump with misrepresentations of what he actually said and often they outright lied.

Their new moniker the Corrupt News Network fits them perfectly.

Funny, Fox News polls also showed Clinton beating Trump. Very selective memory you have.

I don't watch cable news. They are all pretty insufferable in their own way. But this survey of the opinions of 1000 people doesn't really tell you much. Let's look at the math.

quote:
The survey, conducted by Rasmussen Reports, found that 75 percent of likely voters watch at least some cable news each week.


So 50% of people typically vote in Presidential elections, so that means we are talking about 37.5% of the population. Not a telling number.

quote:
Of those, 42 percent watch Fox News, 35 percent CNN and 19 percent MSNBC.


So big surprise, of that 37%, just under half watch a conservative news channel (Fox) and over half watch more liberal-leaning channels (CNN, MSNBC). Big surprise. Naturally viewers will "trust" the network they like to watch.

So the headline shouldn't be about "trusted", it should be, conservative cable news viewers have fewer cable news choir options to choose from. Never mind that "trust" isn't quantifiable or proof of the quality of infotainment. I'd say the people not watching cable news networks are the smart ones.

Facts matter. PCB, Good job of dissecting the detail.

Sometimes (actually more times than not) some here post links which lead to articles with agendas or a limited perspective / quantification of reality. It is quite simple to arrive at an end by limiting or slanting the means.

Further, there is no denying the right wing angle of Rasmussen.

Here are the questions from that survey:

quote:
1* In a typical week, how often do you watch cable news networks for political news?

2* (Asked of approximately 750 cable news watchers) Which cable news network do you generally watch—Fox News, CNN or MSNBC?

3* Do you trust the political news you are getting?

NOTE: Margin of Sampling Error, +/- 3 percentage points with a 95% level of confidence.

http://www.rasmussenreports.com/public_content/politics/questions/pt_survey _questions/january_2017/questions_trust_in_political_news_january_2_2017




Draw your own conclusion of the results.

Rasmussen's operative principle of likely-voters will always provide some skew. Likely voters is defined by people that have voted before or several times before, and those folks tend to be older and tend to be more conservative.

So, it's probably not a reach to say that older people get their news from a television source. Not so younger folks. An interesting thing would be to compare answers to similar questions to people who primarily get their news from internet/mobile sources.

Goober and Muleman are hilarious. They write as if these poll results are the smoking gun proof they've been seeking all along to prove that Democrats and liberals are the problem!!! LOL. Like 2 little kids. I love that they have been representing the right-wing here lately. Quite the team you have there.

LOL!!! That moron store owner believes those thugs tortured another person because of Donald Trump! What a dope! Yes, you are correct sir - those 4 thugs would've been perfect model citizens if it weren't for Trump. How dumb does one have to be? "But the thugs said it so it must be true." LOL. Sounds like he is very sensitive and easily offended.

No, it's real. I just think his rationale is very comical. He states in fox news article, that the four thugs who tortured the mentally challenged white person, was his last straw with liberals, LOL. Somehow, this idiot connects the crime to Liberals, and is completely unaware that he exposed himself as someone who simply hates liberals, and nothing more. Good for him, it must suck carrying around so much unhappiness and anger for reasons he made up in his own mind. Like I said, very comical.

If he does I'm sure he will blame it on Obama.

Well, doesn't the leftist media paint Trump supporters as "Dumb, old angry white people"....If so, why is it that much of a quantum leap to suggest that all "Violent, pissed off young black people" are Hillary voters?.....

C'mon, man. You are talking about two different things. Your comparison doesn't include a violent psychpathic example. If a liberal stated here that the young white man who shot up the black church was his "last straw for conservatives", I'd feel the exact same way - only a fool would think that a psychopath is inspired by politics. Someone inclined to torture might use politics as an excuse, but the desire to torture/kill is surely about something else.
