More bad news for Fox: A recent PPP poll found that the public's trust in the network has sunk to a new low. Except among Republicans. Their confidence in the "fair and balanced" network is so strong that Fox came out as both the least trusted and most trusted network.
I explained the paradox in my recent post at Crooks and Liars but it basically comes down to the fact that Republicans only trust Fox while Democrats "split their allegiance" and trust all the other networks except Fox. The good news for those of us who think Fox is a blight on journalism is that Democrats and independents are seeing the light.
As I also wrote, it's heartening to know that while Roger Ailes and his minions still pretend to lack a partisan agenda, more and more American news consumers know better.
