Saudi-Owned Network Offers Most Trusted News in America

A new poll shows that Prince Alwaleed bin Talal al-Saud’s seven-percent investment in News Corp. is paying off:

Our newest survey looking at perceptions of ABC News, CBS News, CNN, Fox News, and NBC News finds Fox as the only one that more people say they trust than distrust. 49% say they trust it to 37% who do not.

We congratulate Fox Jazeera on its accomplishment.

Fox leads for trust [PPP]

Of the 49%, 89% think eating lead and smoking is good for you.

and there is this

Fox News was the top cable network in primetime last week, averaging the most total viewers between January 18th-24th. The last time FNC topped USA and came in first was during the week of the 2008 presidential election.

In a week dominated by coverage of the earthquake in Haiti and the U.S. Senate election in Massachusetts, FNC drew an average of 3.2 million total viewers in primetime (Mon-Sun).

like I always say, you cant overestimate the stupidity of the murkan voters

I’d be more interested in the remainder of the statement – I could readily say that I trust Faux News, in the context of “I trust Fox to lie their asses off”.

Either that, or once again, we are well and truly fucked. If 49% of Americans haven’t figured out that they’re being lied to, is it time to start packing the Ark? I mean, even my most conservative, long-term Republican friends know that Fox is full of shit; clearly, there’s someplace where people believe every word that Glenn Beck squeezes out in between the tears.

I dont think its that they havent figured out they are being lied to.
I think its as nojo (I believe) said the other day.
they WANT to be lied to.

And 130% will vote for a Palin/Brown preznidenshal ticket.

@Capt Howdy:

I think it’s the eternal optimist in me – it’s possible to imagine educating people who are stupid by accident. Those who are stupid *on purpose* are an entirely different breed.
