Weber Shandwick, Powell Tate and KRC Research polled 1,000 people in April for their annual "Civility In America" study. Thirty-five percent of participants said that Fox News is "uncivil," while 53% described it as "civil."

CNN and MSNBC fared slightly better. Thirty-one percent considered MSNBC "uncivil" and 49% "civil." Thirty-one percent of respondents thought CNN was "uncivil," and 53% "civil." PBS was considered most civil of the networks.

The results did not bode well for news outlets overall. "A considerable 62% called out the media as uncivil in this year’s survey," the study reported. "While this is considerably lower than last year’s incivility rating of 74%, it ranks among the top five most uncivil aspects of American life."

A whopping majority of people (82%) also believe that the media is more interested in controversy than facts, and 55% of respondents said that they were tuning out of "news coverage and reporting" due to incivility.

What's with the 53% who think Fox News is civil?????

A shockingly high number on that score.

I guess their snark and bias is fairly well hidden unless you know what they're doing?

'Some say,'... must be considered an innocuous formulation, however invidiously it is played.

What's wrong with polling a moon at crazy leftist audience, getting a moon at crazy leftist answer, and then promoting it as "TRUTH" back to that very same moon at crazy leftist audience?

Nothing if you running a thugocracy, in fact it's impossible to run a thugocracy without having a substantial following tat I'll regurgitate their spoon fed "TRUTH" on command.
