    All that really says is Americans wrongfully trust Fox.

    Why am I not surprised you said this with that link. All without understanding that link isn't saying they are trust worthy...... Just that their viewers think they are.


    In other words people who watch fox are semi retarded.
    I have a fan. Seems he was permabanned.

    Yeah, well they play fast because of the nature of the business, they are all slugging it out for money, that is no way an excuse. Journalism is dying because it isn't sexy. People don't want to be informed, they want to be entertained and told fairy tales.

    Associated Press https://www.ap.org/en-us/

    Reuters https://www.reuters.com/

    Both of these news sites have extremely accurate and mostly unbiased news. They are very trustworthy but not perfect.

    Why are they so good? Both sell their news stories to hundreds of newspapers and TV news sites around the world. The more bias they remove, the easier it is to sell their stories.

    And they have to protect their rep, it's valuable to them.

    I don't find Fox or CNN all that trustworthy.

    Fox News. The fake news meme wasn't a lie. CNN has been faking news for quite sometime.

    I shouldn't have to explain this to a grown-ass man, but 'trusted' does not mean they report truthfully. It means they have a large following and is literally completely independent of the face of how true or false they report.

    Basically your link just says that Fox has the largest cult in the US.

    Also I'm not defending CNN at all in this thread, contrary to how it may look. They are motivated by money as all major news outlets are and trust for them should go as far as that personally, but Fox news is just in a whole new dimension of fake news and false stories. Literally propaganda.

    Last time i watched it was about the helicopter crash in NY. They were far more careful about that reporting so i do believe they learned from the past.

    People do want to be informed, but as some philosophers predicted our access to more information did not make us more informed it simply made it harder for us to be correctly informed. To be fully informed you need to spend quite a bit of time in today's world and that's the one thing we don't have in abundance any more in this world were everything has to go and become faster.

    If I do not respond to your post directed at myself, there will be three reasons. 1. You are on my ignore list. 2. You did not make a post I felt was worthy of a response. 3. I simply never saw it, as I do not dig thru posts if I been offline for a while.

    "Rather than ranking their favorite news sources, the survey asked 4,012 viewers how much they trusted broadcast and cable TV news sources that they watched three or more times per week."

    So the people that really love these news sources (and only the ones watching them on TV read: old people) rate them.

    I'm sure if you asked people in the 70's in the Soviet Union who watched Vremya on TV three times a week if Vremya was trustworthy they'd say yes.

    It's okay we are all aware that you are scared to step outside that bubble, a bubble of fear and anger created by the media channels you trust blindly.

    But i get it, in between supporting kiddy fiddlers, abusing women and coloured people it's hard to find the time to inform yourself.

    neither both are misleading when it comes to their reporting. Only report half a story or only taking certain angles on a story.

  13. #33
    Fox's opinion shows like Ingraham, Hannity, and Tucker are biased but they don't claim to be neutral. All of CNN's coverage is biased but Fox's actual news programs like Bret Baier, Chris Wallace, and Shepherd Smith are usually pretty impartial.

    That's the problem with asking which is more trustworthy, as opposed to asking which is more accurate. People have no problem trusting biased sources that lie to them. They trust that a specific company will only tell them what they want to hear, and not the actual news in an unvarnished fashion. In the end, it can just become a popularity contest. The question itself doesn't actually help much. If the last three years have proven anything, is that people love trusting lies and misinformation.

    I don't trust either. That being said, i don't even consider Fox to be an actual news source. It's the public relations arm of the GOP, and has been since most of the people on these forums have been alive.

    Yes, someone actually said that.

    Well, Fox News has outscored CNN by far for several years by various different polls and research sources. This was the most recent I could find without spending a lot of time looking.

    Fox no contest.
    Also a really big lol@people here who don't watch Fox but think they know what it shows.
    As an Australian that watches both, CNN is just pathetic now. May as well be establishment owned like many other news outlets in the world.

    The ratings speak for themselves lets be honest, and CNN relies on them being in airports, public spaces etc even

    None to me. There are other news sources that are more trust worthy.

    CNN is mostly right because they are pressed to be "right" since the mess in irak. If not, it would be the same alternate reality on heroin than fox news.
