Fox, the most trusted news???

http://www.politico.com/news/stories/0110/32039.html


I recall that not to long ago there was a poll that said that Fox news viewers were also the most likely to believe things that were not true.

RK, Do a search. It has been discussed here before. You can then google the study. Of course, we all know that the straightforward questions were biased and the damn liberal elite researchers also lied with the statistics.

Does this mean that you embrace less than the most trusted news?

From your source;


“A generation ago you would have expected Americans to place their trust in the most neutral and unbiased conveyors of news,” said PPP President Dean Debnam in his analysis of the poll. “But the media landscape has really changed, and now they’re turning more toward the outlets that tell them what they want to hear.”


Does that mean maybe, your trust is misplaced?

more than 90% of all the statistics you read on the internet are made up on the spot

Outstaning point and rising out of all that bias is the one that is trusted most, Fox.

But the bias is right wing;

From wikipedia:


Right-wing Bias
Quite a few left-wing blogs have accused The Politico of being right-wing for several reasons, added that in there. 67.160.106.255 (http://www.retrievertraining.net/w/index.php?title=User:67.160.106.255&action=edit&redlink=1) 05:52, 26 March 2007 (UTC)
It absolutely is. With headlines like "Tax returns show Clintons got rich quick," "Extreme Makeover: Pennsylvania edition" "bloomberg candidacy would help dems" OF COURSE there is a clear rightwing bias. Just look at the site. Tallicfan20 (http://www.retrievertraining.net/wiki/User:Tallicfan20) (talk (http://www.retrievertraining.net/wiki/User_talk:Tallicfan20)) 22:02, 5 April 2008 (UTC)
That's ridiculous. The site has gone after conservatives too. Just because "a few left-wing blogs" have accused them of being biased doesn't mean anything. Some of them would accuse JFK of being right-wing. Arnabdas (http://www.retrievertraining.net/wiki/User:Arnabdas) (talk (http://www.retrievertraining.net/wiki/User_talk:Arnabdas)) 18:54, 15 April 2008 (UTC)The charge of right-wing bias appears warranted. On July 31, 2008 Carrie Budoff Brown published an article at 04:33 AM which says in the title "GOP's celeb-Obama message gains traction." Since the video ad she refers to was released on July 30, 2008, and is critical of Obama it appears it would be impossible to ascertain by 4 o'clock IN THE MORNING of the following day that her assertion was verified by any objective measurement technique known to science. —Preceding unsigned (http://www.retrievertraining.net/wiki/Wikipedia:Signatures) comment added by 68.15.57.109 (http://www.retrievertraining.net/wiki/Special:Contributions/68.15.57.109) (talk (http://www.retrievertraining.net/wiki/User_talk:68.15.57.109)) 16:31, 31 July 2008 (UTC)
I removed your entry. Poorly written, slanted, et cetera. Wikipedia isn't an opinion blog.

I have to agree with the above people. Politico seems pretty conservative. Granted, I occasionally see something attacking conservatives, but it seems to have a preponderance of anti-Obama, anti-Democrat type articles. It almost seems like a weak Fox News. In fact, I came to Wikipedia to see what, if anything, Wikipedia said about it.

No not really.Here's what you do. Type in "Fox viewers less informed" into your browsers search window, make sure it is set to search something like Google, Bing etc. Then pick an article and read it then psot here and tell us all how the poll is biased.

The thing I trust about Fox News is that Megyn Kelly will be back on the air Monday to brighten my day for two hours :D:D:D

they do have the propensity for attracting attractive, intelligent, conservative female commentators and analysts, dont they? then they pit them against the likes of Alan Combs for the other side....LOL!

who says Fox news aint smart??

Though I don't watch NBC News, Fox News' ratings pale by comparison...

Brian Williams' broadcast averaged 9.444 million total viewers, compared with Gibson's 8.187 million and Katie Couric's 6.750 million total viewers

I have to pay to watch FOX News, NBC is still "free" for those with an antenna and converter. I'll pay thank you very much.

Not really.

92% of all USA Households have ADS for TV. Of the 92% with Alternative Delivery Systems for TV, two-thirds are cable and one-third satellite. That's 8% households with rabbit ears or no TV at all.

most news providers have an agenda it just depends on which one suits you as a news consumer, I am generally skeptical about all of them and watch and listen to many outlets

I find on the most annoying list

1. Keith Olberman

2. Bill O'Reilly

3. Glen (I'll cry if you want me to) Beck

4. Hannity and his weird looking buddy

5. Chris Matthews

6. Shepard Smith

7. Anderson Cooper

In general I like the network news because the news personalities are not annoying

Number one on my list from yours Ed is Chris Matthews.

The man just seems to love a Machiavellian approach to politics and seems to view everything through that lens. He's tied with Glenn Beck. That guy is just plain spooky, what a propagandist.

I miss him to, he was one guy I trusted to be prepared and grill the right and left equally, but honestly. I sure don't feel the same about his replacement.
