In a recent poll, CNN was ranked as the most trusted news source while Fox News was ranked as the least trustworthy TV news source. Forced to choose between these two, where would you turn to for trusted news?

What never gets discussed is what news organizations fail to report. They cover up the truth by ignoring it. They don't have to lie.

I'm not at all surprised. Fox is very far from "Fair and Balanced." Even considering myself mostly a conservative, how anyone can take them seriously is beyond me. They're a propaganda machine like no other, and really an affront to journalism.

But how do you really feel? Oh, you're wrong !

Nah, I'm really not. I wish I was even stretching the truth, but I'm not. I appreciate the "you're wrong!" with no supplemental argument in your favor. Very convincing, you won me over.

Who's poll was that? BuzzFeed's?

Funny, you didn't mention it was a CNN sponsored poll with CNN as the only answer.

Anyone that thinks Rush Limbaugh gives News is out to lunch, he's a pundit. Politifact is a highly biased organization that deals in half truths.

Tough to read news you don't like. The poll was done by Pew Research, Politifact reported it. That doesn't invalidate the poll. I agree that Limbaugh is not a news source, that's why I left him out of the question.

Just a few problems with the article
1. Politifact is done by the Tampa Bay times not St. Pete times
2. It alleges selection bias but only looks to a study that delat with "over the last 13 months" which is selection bias in itself

3. They take suggestions from the public among other ways on what to fact check so maybe the readers are just more interested in statements made by republicans.

Scratch number one, the tampa bay Times used to be the st. pete times.

I'm the first to admit I'm biased as hell I have used articles from The Huffington Post to make a point with the left. Suddenly they aren't legitimate according to the other side. Which proves the point about journalism as a whole, they are all

pundits and they show no shame whatsoever. We found out during the last election that pollsters can't be trusted so all that's left is to read everything you can on both sides and then you'll still make a biased decision.

Squidboy; it's not tough to read, something similar comes out everyday. Kind of like people who watch Fox are just less intelligent which turned out to be a hoax by the Onion. But the left adopted it as fact. Just more willing idiots I guess.
