New poll: Who do Americans believe is the most objective news source?

[Ed. – Suffice it to say you won’t be reading about these results in the MSM.]

… [A]ccording to the Gallup/Knight Foundation Survey on Trust, Media and Democracy, Americans believe the news media have an important role to play in society, with more than eight in 10 U.S. adults believing the news media are critical or very important to our democracy. But they say it’s harder (58 percent) rather than easier (38 percent) to be informed with the sheer about of information and news sources available.

And Americans still have a more negative (43 percent) than positive (33 percent) perception of the media.

Fox News ranks as the most objective information source (24 percent) followed by CNN (13 percent), and NPR (10 percent). When broken down by political affiliation, 60 percent of Republicans say Fox is most objective, but just 3 percent of Democrats say that. CNN is most objective with 21 percent of Democrats and just 4 percent of Republicans. Fox is deemed most objective among older Americans (65+) garnering 35 percent, while CNN found that millennials, with 15 percent, believe it is most objective. [Emphasis added]
