Who Do You Trust?
Read The Results And Weep Liberals
Interesting that the George Soros backed MSNBC came in behind the "Undecided" when it comes to straight up news coverage and who the American people trust to provide their news with any credibility. They came in dead last as far as the cable news channels go so maybe Soros should throw some more loot on them hoping to buy the influence of the American public. I could run them against the Cartoon Channel and they'd be bested there too.
The shake out is as follows: FOX News - 28% with CNN a distant second at 18%. Undecided came in third at 12% with "Other" and NBC trailing the pack at 10% each. MSNBC was in the nose bleed section at 7% with ABC and CBS providing the Kleenex at 6%. C-Span wrapped up the rear with a 3% trust factor.
The poll was a telephone survey poll of one thousand people chosen at random from the Northeast, South, Midwest and West conducted by Suffolk University. Of the respondents there were 62 more women polled than men. Of those polled 39% were Democrats, 34% were Republicans, 22% were Independents and 5% were "Other." We seem to always have some people who are undecided or other in the mix. 96% of the respondents IDed themselves as likely voters in 2012.
You can find some of the other sample questions here with the results. I won't spend too much time outlining the results, but the results are in.
It always has slayed me when a whiner comes on a Hub talking about Faux News. Then they rant about what Glenn Beck, Hannity or O'Reilly has been saying. I pause and then ask, "How do you know that much about what they are saying if you claim not to be watching?"
Myself, I like my news straight up and not all fluffy and warm and fuzzy. They report, I decide. You see news hounds, FOX has two divisions. The first is the hard news division and the other is the commentary division. Liberals usually seem to confuse the two. Other than Beck at 5 PM EST, the hard news division dominates until 8 PM EST when Bill O'Reilly makes his appearance followed by Sean and then Greta.
Evidently, the majority of Americans have realized which end is up with the Lame Stream Media and decided to really wrap their heads around the reality of the world and this nation. Things aren't going to well even though the Lame Stream Media wants people to think otherwise. Well, the results speak for themselves.
Good job FOX News. Keep up that level of journalism the American public deserves. If you haven't ever tuned in, check your local cable guide.
