Arrow CNN Earns Title Of Least Trusted Cable News Network

CNN is the least trusted cable news network, according to a new poll published Wednesday.

The survey, conducted by Rasmussen Reports, found that 75 percent of likely voters watch at least some cable news each week.

Of those, 42 percent watch Fox News, 35 percent CNN and 19 percent MSNBC.

Regarding political news coverage, respondents seem to view all the cable news networks with some skepticism.

“Fair and balanced” Fox News scored the best with 50 percent reporting they trust the political news they are getting from the network. Meanwhile, 43 percent of MSNBC viewers said they trust the political news offered there.

CNN came in last among the big three, with just 33 percent indicating they really believe “the most trusted name in news.”

“Most Republicans (72%) watch Fox, while 50% of Democrats would rather view CNN. Voters not affiliated with either party are evenly divided between the two,” according to Rasmussen.

As reported by Western Journalism, for the first time in Fox News’ 20-year history, it earned the crown of the most watched cable channel in 2016, topping ESPN and TBS.

The network only trails broadcast channels NBC, CBS, ABC and Fox in terms of overall viewers.
