The BBC, Fox News and PBS are the most-trusted TV news brands in the U.S., according to an analysis released Tuesday.
Research Intelligencer by Brand Keys surveyed 4,012 viewers who rated broadcast and cable brands that they watch more than three times per week “to determine how much trust those brands engendered.”
The BBC came in first, with 90 percent of those surveyed saying they trust the British news outlet.
Fox News and PBS came in second and third with 87 percent and 86 percent of respondents, respectively, trusting the TV news outlets.
Bloomberg, with 81 percent, and MSNBC, with 80 percent, round out the top five.
The broadcast networks’ news division finished sixth, seventh and eighth, with CBS coming in at 72 percent, NBC at 70 percent and ABC at 69 percent.
CNN and Sinclair are the final two TV news outlets included in the survey, with CNN tying ABC at 69 percent on the trust scale and Sinclair last at 58 percent.
I am at least gratified to see that Sinclair is at the bottom of the pile, but with Fox News polling second I fear for the future of this country.
Here is just one example of the accuracy with which Fox News reports “the facts.”

And trust me, this is far from an isolated incident.
