Fox News Most Trusted News Source In U.S.

The Fox News Channel is the most trusted news source in America, according to a new poll released by the BBC and Reuters that surveyed 10,000 news consumers around the world.

Asked which news source they most trusted, 11 percent of Americans named Fox News - more than any other news source in the U.S.

Fox News led the broadcast networks by substantial margins, with ABC coming in at 4 percent, NBC - 4 percent and CBS - 3 percent.

While the opinion portions of Fox programming is clearly right-leaning, I must admit that their news segments are very balanced.

I don't particularly like Fox news for the same reason I don't watch the major networks, CNN or MSNBC. Almost all American news agencies are focused on the small picture.

I love this country and I think it is the est in the world, but if you watch American news you would think that all the world's events take place between Maine and California with an occasional car-bombing in Iraq.

The fact that Fox news won the poll with such a small percentage shows how distrustful and/or ignorant most Americans are about geopolitics. Things that happen overseas do effect our lives here in the States.

For example, if Americans understood the growing economies of China and India then you wouldn't have time wasted on 'evil oil company' stories. If informed, Americans would undertand that supply and demand and not corruption are driving petrol prices up.

Even Fox news is guilty of establishing the groundwork of ignorance and it perpetuates lies and deceit from politicians when it constantly airs stories on a missing American girl in Aruba rather than the pressing issues that affct this country profoundly.

I agree, Jason. One of the big problems in my opinion, is the media focus on soundbites. I don't understand why they can't go into more detail on stories, rather than rushing through the story so they can move on to the next topic and they never really give us the big picture on anything.
