NBCUniversal is having a bad week. On Wednesday, MSNBC came under fire for it’s offensive tweet about conservatives, and now new polling shows both NBC News and MSNBC rank at the very bottom of trustworthy media outlets in America.
“NBC News and sister cable outlet MSNBC rank at the bottom of media outlets that Americans trust for news,” Glenn said on radio this morning. “This is really, truly amazing.”
According to a new ‘trust poll’ from the Democratic Public Policy Polling, 35% of participants said they trust Fox News more than any other outlet. PBS comes in second at 14% ollowed by PBS at 14 percent, followed by ABC at 11%, CNN at 10%, CBS at 9%, 6% for MSNBC and Comedy Central, and just 3% for NBC. This is Public Policy Polling’s fifth edition of the ‘trust poll.’
“Think of what they have done to Fox. Think of how the nonstop relentless attacks on Fox have been,” Glenn said. “NBC is worse than MSNBC. But NBC I think gets that rap because they're the global warming station. They're the ones who are constantly doing propaganda. They are the ones constantly doing the Affordable Care Act propaganda. They have made their bed, and they've sown all the seeds. [They] are in bed with this Administration.”
Ironically, Fox News also tops Public Policy’s ‘least trustworthy’ list with 33% of the vote. MNBC comes in second on that list with 19%. To even further exacerbate the partisan polarization, Public Policy points out that 38% of Republicans designate MSNBC as the least trustworthy, meaning Republicans distrust MSNBC more than Democrats trust it.
“I think what that means is you have one source that has any, any conservative on it,” Stu said of Fox News’ bizarre distinction in both polls. “All Republicans like it, but it shows what we've talked about forever… this is why TheBlaze is needed so much. There's only one [network] that conservatives can even come close to liking. They hate everything else because everything else offends their values constantly.”
