New polling data shows that Fox is now the most trusted name is news.

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.

I guess CNN will need to change their slogan.

Also interesting is the spin that PPP puts on the results of their own poll.

“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.”

Maybe they asked such a question, but if so it wasn't reported in this story. It sounds to me that Debnam is projecting his own biases onto his poll data and inferring accordingly.
