The Most Trusted Name in News

What's interesting about this report, to me, isn't that Fox is the most trusted name in news, but that the most trusted name in news is only most-trusted by 11% of the population.

Contrast that with, say, the Egyptians to see how far we've come.

Our most trusted outlet? Fox, at 11%. Egypts? Al Jazeera at 59%.

No, I don't know (many) people who'd think it's because Al Jazeera is just more trustworthy than any American media outlets.
