Poll: Fox News is both most and least trusted cable network (Credit: Wikipedia/Inside Cable news)

A new Public Policy Poll  finds that overall Fox News’ credibility is on the decline, but “When it comes to asking Americans which single outlet they trust the most and least out of the ones we polled on, Fox News once again wins both honors.”

According to PPP, Fox News has hit a record low in credibility, with 41 percent of voters saying they trust the network, and 46 percent saying they do not. In 2010, when PPP first started doing the poll, the results were 49 percent-37 percent.

But people also had strong feelings both ways about Fox News’ trustworthiness:



When it comes to asking Americans which single outlet they trust the most and least out of the ones we polled on, Fox News once again wins both honors. 34% say it’s the one they trust the most, compared to 13% for PBS, 12% for CNN, 11% for ABC, 8% for MSNBC, 6% for CBS, and 5% each for Comedy Central and NBC.

Even more Americans identify Fox News as the outlet they trust the least- 39% give its that designation to 14% for MSNBC, 13% for CNN, 12% for Comedy Central, 5% for ABC and CBS, 3% for NBC, and 1% for PBS.

PBS had the highest credibility, with 52 percent of voters saying they trust it, compared with 29 percent who say they do not.
