Suffolk University Poll: Fox Most Trusted Political News Source (Updated)

Topics: Political News and commentaries

Bad News for Liberals, and especially the loons at Media Matters obsessed with attacking Fox.

A new Suffolk University poll revealed that Fox News is the most trusted political news source among those surveyed.

FOX News - 28%
CNN - 18%
Undecided - 12%
And to add insult to injury, the rest, including the radical-left's favorite - MSNBC, ranked even lower than "undecided":
NBC - 10%
Other - 10%
MSNBC - 7%
ABC - 6%
CBS - 6%
C-SPAN - 3%
AIM has additional commentary.

Update: Krauthammer's take on the O'Reilly show (Warning to liberals - take your anger management meds before reading):

O'REILLY: Now, finally in the new Suffolk University poll out of Boston, it puts FOX News far and away the most trusted network at 28 percent. How powerful is FNC right now compared to the rest of the media?

KRAUTHAMMER: It''s extremely powerful for one major reason. It broke the monopoly that the left had, the liberals had on all the media for about 30 years. ABC, NBC, CBS, NPR, PBS, the major papers, as you mentioned earlier, the universities, all of the commanding heights of the culture.

Here comes one network with a different point of view, one that is an anathema to the liberal elites. And not only succeeds, succeeds resoundingly. It's what I've always said about the genius of Rupert Murdoch and Roger Ailes, that they found a niche in the audience for American broadcast news, and it was half the American people.

Krauthammer also pointed out the Pew study (note that the link is to the very liberal Alan Colmes) on the 2008 election that found that of the three cable networks, FOX played it absolutely right down the middle the same amount of favorability to McCain as to Obama. CNN three times as favorable to Obama as to McCain, MSNBC was 5 to 1 in favor of Obama.

In the same segment, O'Reilly pointed out a study done by the Center for Media and Public Affairs that showed the network broadcasts -- CBS, ABC, and NBC -- were 68 percent positive for then-Senator Obama. Thirty-two percent negative. The coverage for McCain was the exact opposite.
