"The Least and Most Trusted News Sources in America".
February 23, 2022 08:09PM
"The Least and Most Trusted News Sources in America". Interesting, the least trusted source is run by Democrats and most trusted by business interests out of the City of London and the bastion of free markets. NPR comes in 5th, ahead of the Wall Street Journal.

If you notice, the source of the survey is the visualcapitalist.com. Not exactly the Brothers Bolshevik.

PecosPeet are you from Pecos, Texas? I am third generation South Texan and son of the DAR. I gave up the weed about 50 years ago, more into a good Malbec.

definition: I.M.H.O. the operative word in this definition of trust: is "BELIEF"

How many folks with "firm beliefs" in conspiracy theories where included in the polling results????
I would throw their responses out as "uninformed bias". Any statistician will tell you that.

Just look at the polarization of the results.

And coincidences of coincidences, the most untrustworthy sources are the same sources who say the other side is untrustworthy.

The OP link is from August 2, 2017, article By Jeff Desjardins.

I always thought the Christian Science Monitor had high integrity, (not listed on the survey).

What's the old adage attributed to Edgar Allan Poe,

Believe nothing you hear, and only one half that you see.

Pedro, Good point, the Christian Science Monitor certainly should be on the list as well as the Financial Times. This kind of survey is next to impossible to do objectively to suit all. As to the date, I donΒ΄t think 4 or 5 years is long enough to represent a great change in currency.
