These are the most — and the least — trusted news sources in the U.S.

 

President Trump scores low on trustworthiness survey

Maybe it’s the accent. When it comes to news, Americans deemed British media more trustworthy than their U.S. counterparts in a world where “fake news” has emerged as an ideological battle cry and less of an oxymoron.

The most trusted news source in the U.S. is The Economist — a weekly magazine published in the U.K., according to a recent survey from the University of Missouri’s Reynolds Journalism Institute.

The second-most reliable is public television, followed by Reuters and BBC. Two U.S. nonprofit outlets, NPR and PBS, came in at fifth and sixth, while the U.K.’s The Guardian clinched the seventh spot. The U.S.-based Wall Street Journal, Los Angeles Times and Dallas Morning News rounded out the top 10 trusted names in journalism.

The Wall Street Journal is owned by News Corp. NWS, +0.34% NWSA, +0.74%  the parent of MarketWatch.

At the other extreme, Occupy Democrats — a political website with a self-claimed agenda of counterbalancing the Republican Tea Party — won the dubious honor of being the most untrustworthy in the nation. Buzzfeed, Breitbart and Infowars also scored dismally on the trust-meter.

The results were based on a survey of more than 8,000 people conducted by 28 media organizations in the U.S. Participation was voluntary but respondents tended to reside near the news outlets that made the questionnaire available on their websites, and leaned toward the liberal side of the political spectrum.

The survey also showed that politically liberal respondents were more trusting than conservatives, while Caucasians were more likely than non-whites to have confidence in the media.

As the chart below illustrates, the level of trust remained fairly steady among people who identify themselves as liberals or moderates regardless of their age; among conservatives, trust dropped off sharply with age. At the same time, financial support for the media had a strong correlation with age.

The debate over trust and journalism has taken on a whole different tone in recent months as President Donald Trump has vociferously attacked mainstream media as “fake news” in response to unfavorable coverage.

Ironically, Trump was also viewed as untrustworthy, with a credibility score that was better than social-media sources but worse than the internet.

The stupidity of liberals, ability to ignore their ignorance

Per that first chart, it don't take much to fool people.                                                    I've been sick, some days I don't leave the house. I have dish TV. I have hundreds of channels and nothing worth watching. I try to watch news. CNN, MSNBC and FOX all seem to have the same boss. If there is a train wreck, all three have a panel of experts that will tell me there has been a train wreck and show their smiling faces and don't ever show a picture of the train wreck. I wanna see the wreck. If it weren't for I-Pad and internet, I'd go crazy.

Drop Fox out of that. The others don't report the news, they make it up and feed it to you slops. Last time I watched Fox for any length of time was election night. Before that it was after your muzzie pals bombed the Boston marathon, then when your muzzie pets from Calif slaughtered people. Fox was the ONLY one NOT making up the news about the bombing and other events, or trying to gloss over the fact it was muzzies. I read newspapers and other legitimate news sites, and if I get something in my email I do a search to see if it's legit before I pass it along, unlike you. You use the internet, and I-Pad, yet you can't post links. Amazing. By not posting links it shows it's just something you either made up, got in your email, heard on one of the lefty talk shows, or read on one of your fake news sites.
