"As most news outlets are portraying the dead Ronald Reagan as
an iconic and heroic figure, the Pew Research Center has released a
survey that shows:
-- GOPers trust the major media organizations much less than Democrats. Only 15 to 17 percent of Republicans believe the network news shows are credible.
-- Even Fox News Channel is trusted by only 29 percent of Republicans.
-- CNN is trusted by 26 percent of Republicans.
-- About [ONLY!] a third of Democrats said they have faith in the networks.
-- [ONLY!] 45 percent of Democrats said they consider CNN credible.
-- Only 25% of Democrats considered Fox a trustworthy news source and only 29% of Republicans trust Fox either!
-- The Pew report notes, "Republicans have become more distrustful of virtually all major media outlets over the past four years, while Democratic evaluations of the news media have been mostly unchanged."
