About 75 percent of likely voters watch at least some cable TV news weekly, and among those who do, Fox News gets the largest regular audience, with 42 percent, followed by 35 percent who generally watch CNN and 19 percent who watch MSNBC, according to a recent Rasmussen Reports study reported by the Washington Examiner.
The survey also found that CNN had the lowest trust level among its audience, with just 33 percent of its viewers reporting that they trust the information they get from CNN. Fox News not only had the largest share of the audience, but also the highest level of trust among its viewers—50 percent.
Interpret the math, and it means that almost twice as many likely voters both watch and trust Fox News, as opposed to CNN. So here’s a crazy idea: If CNN wants to improve their ratings and influence, maybe they shouldn’t lie to us so much!
