A new Hill-HarrisX poll found Fox News the most distrusted name in mainstream news outlets, though most trusted among Republicans.
The poll found that in a list of news outlets, such as CNN, ABC, The Wall Street Journal, etc., Fox got the highest “distrust” rating, 40%. CNN and MSNBC tied for second at 35% and The New York Times was fourth, at 34%.
ABC and CNN were the most trusted news sources, with 45 and 44%, respectively. Oddly, Fox News came in third, with 39%. That’s probably because 54% of Republicans trust Fox. However, among Trump voters, Fox was trusted 58% vs. 26% not trusting. Among Biden voters, it was almost the opposite: 30%/54%.
The survey was conducted with 1095 registered voters.

Fact is that Fox(not)News is “cuddly” for people who want to hear only what they want to hear. It makes them feel intelligent.
