CNN and FOX trust wars - Amendment

Reported by Chrish - May 4, 2006

In an earlier post I cited a Reuters report that claimed that when "asked to name the news source they most trusted, without any prompting, 59 percent of Egyptians said Al Jazeera, 52 percent of Brazilians said Rede Globo, 32 percent of Britons said the BBC, 22 percent of Germans said ARD and 11 percent of Americans said Fox News, each leading their respective nations."

But reading the poll results here, we see that FOX News and CNN are in a virtual tie, each with 11% of the respondents citing them as most trusted. Added to CNN's 44% vote as most trusted in global brands, CNN is clearly entitled to continue claiming to be "the most trusted name in news."

Just wanted to clear that up.
