And on top of that, O'Reilly is the most trusted news source among individuals. Some better informed observers call this news 'disturbing'.

But at the liberal Media Matters, Executive Vice President Ari Rabin-Havt says the public's trust in Fox is disturbing. A regular Fox critic, he says the poll reveals that "Fox News viewers trust the information that Fox gives them."

The article touched on what my first thought was: VERY bad sign for network news.

They don't make the news like they used to. In the mad dash for ratings they morphed into "infotainment". St.

The known Porpaganda Channel....most trusted? Sad indication of America's intellect and mental laziness, IMO.

Any well informed person, knows that Fox is a joke. Truly, a joke.

Fox is NOT most trusted news source. That implies that they give the most accurate information, which they don't.

As this guy says, the poll only shows that,

ie they are dumb saps.

Also, what's wrong here?

Watch the video if you can stand it but look at the stats on the screen - 'Jobs created by decade.'

Why does it stop at the 90's?

That started with '60 MINUTES" decades ago.

</div></div>Wow, talk about making up your own definition and then running with it as if you were correct in the first place. Trust does not imply accuracy of information.

It is if you say 'Fox is the most trusted news <u>source</u>.

ie, what they are telling you is true.

Maybe we could converse in Dutch if that would help. English doesn't seem to be your strong point. /forums/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/cool.gif

You are reinforcing the Left stereotype that people are too stupid to govern themselves and need 'help' from the really smart elitists to control them. this is not true.

No, I'm referring to the fact that the polls used by the righties on this forum, are a joke! Laughable! Suspect! Partisan! Far from the vast agreement, of other polls, which are not known righteing polling organizations, such as the one you quote..../forums/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/grin.gif

Besides, 45% of their viewership, is Evangalical Christians, people who I consider to be mentally disturbed, since they take the Bible, literally, which would suggest, that they believe that a man, can live inside of a whale.

Coming from a self admitted, avowed, over the edge partisan, you are the real joke here.

Your polls say the Dems are doing great yet the ultimate poll, election day, proved that was not the case.

Where do you come up with the idea that Suffolk University is some sort right wing organization?

You quote stuff from The Daily Kos and media matters and huffington post which range from the left to the extreme left. You are wrongly accusing us on the right of doing what you are doing as a matter of routine.

Leftists, as a whole, are ... that's why they keep coming up with leaders like Hitler, Mao, Pot, Lenin, Stalin, Che, Fidel, Ceaucescu, Amin, et al.

Very interesting. So the Left is projecting their own weakness onto the rest of us.
