New Stanek poll: Which news agency do you trust the least?

poll%20graphic%20correct%20size.bmpI have a new poll question up:

Which news agency do you trust the least?

Bill O'Reilly asked this question August 21, and I thought it was a good one. No surprise, I saw Bill didn't include Fox as 1 of the possible answers, so I did.

Here are the results of my previous poll. 3/4 of Americans were pessimistic; our International voters were slightly less so...

As always, make comments to either this or last week's poll here, not on the Vizu website.


The NY times is the worst.

we should include CBS, ABC and NBC in the poll as well. I'd say CBS evening news is the next worse (with Katie Couric)....

..A-MESS-NBC is just a joke.

Which is more painful smashing my thumb or my forefinger?

Seeing as how I've never seen Fox, have watched a grand total of- what?- forty-five minutes of CNN, have never read anything other than the book reviews on New York Times, only PBS's shows on brain research, and look at pictures on MSNBC...

I'm going to have to go with The Onion.

But I do love them.

Actually, to be serious, I've never seen PBS news so they're probably the lowest on my list. I'll try finding some articles or videos sometime.

Never seen PBS news, never read the NYT, never watched Fox. I'm afraid to ask, where to you get your news?

MSNBC by far, followed by it parent company.

I get my news from Reuters, the AP, NBC (not MSNBC; the television network, as in, the Today Show's news blips or the Nightly News), and coalitions like Save Darfur and the Make-a-Wish Foundation. I'm big on subscriptions. :)

My teacher recommended Reuters and the Associated Press to me some time ago because he said that they were the most objective. From what I've seen (by the way, I wasn't serious about forty-five minutes of CNN; I think that it's impossible to avoid CNN; they're everywhere), they seem to be the best at objectivity. Though, sometime the Associated Press confuses me- it's language isn't always neutral.

And I read an article in the New York Times yesterday on women's rights if it helps my case. It wasn't breaking news, more like a special, but it was still the New York Times...
