    The polls show that Fox is the least trusted newschannel on television.
    And within the poll results, you'll see that a majority of Democrats (65%) and a majority of Independents (52%) distrust Fox the most.
    Only Repubs trust Fox.
    They trust Fox to tell them what they want to hear.
    Pro-right-wing propaganda.

    I don't know how it is where you all live but here in the south, if you go into a bank, a doctor or dentists waiting room, an airport, the bank, hardware store and the list goes on, everyone of them has FOX NEWS on daily, its sickening. These southern far righters live this stuff !!

    It is interesting how you "absolutely believe it". PPP is tied tightly to the Democratic Party. Suffolk University, whose poll showed otherwise, is independent, and was even lauded by the DailyKos.

    Seems as though you believe what you want to believe instead of what appears to be positions driven by data from the most credible sources. It is interesting that someone, whose professional role suggests a logical, analytical thinker, when it comes to personal life is anything but.

    LOL!
    In the interest of fairness, Fox has repeatedly polled as both the least and the most trusted newchannel - often in the same poll .
    Fox has a chunk of hardcore right-wingers who watch Fox and only Fox and who believe every word they hear on Fox.
    They LIKE that Fox has a pro-right-wing bias and they name Fox as the most trustworthy.
    And a majority of non-Repubs distrust Fox and recognize that Fox is a pro-right-wing propaganda machine.

    If you believe Fox news is the most trustworthy...chances are good you believe or believed one or more of the following: Obama is a Kenyan, climate change is a hoax, Iraq had WMD, Obama is a Muslim and Rush Limbaugh/ Newt Gingrich are proper defenders of marriage.

    That seems to sum up the alternate universe theory in a nutshell.

    Yup.
    The Fox viewing segment of US society really does live in an alternate reality.
