That's the problem - the results weren't weighted. They show results by different groups (men/women), (age), (political association), (2008 Vote), and then totals for all 1,151 respondents.
If you look at viewership, Fox is in the top each and every night. I know that doesn't mean all the viewers trust Fox. I just found it interesting... Also, weighting in polls is supposed to even things out if people refuse to answer or the pollster can't find more liberals. I can see why the results would be laughable if only raw data were used. Weighted, not so much.

I did like also that you could answer "yes" to any and all of the news channels. Something interesting that could be concluded from this study is that conservatives get the majority of their news from only Fox, whereas liberals and moderates watch multiple news channels. Percentage of People who replied "no" when asked if they ever watch this channel's news: CBS: Libs, 29%; Mods, 33%; Cons 68% CNN: Libs, 21%; Mods, 31%; Cons 60% ABC: Libs, 31%; Mods, 34%; Cons 67% NBC: Libs, 22%; Mods, 33%; Cons 66% FOX: Libs, 66%; Mods, 48%; Cons 13% Now that to me is more interesting. I do think this study provides some insight into where people with certain political inclinations (liberal versus conservative) get their news, but I don't think the ratio of cons., mods., libs. they used is representative of the general public, so thus you can't make a general conclusion from this study.

I will say at least this is one study that provides it's methodology and actual results of the study - so kudos for that!

"PPP conducted a national survey of 1,151 registered voters on January 18th and 19th. The survey’s margin of error is +/-2.8%. Other factors, such as refusal to be interviewed and weighting, may introduce additional error that is more difficult to quantify." The actual report: I just find this laughable. Considering that 39% of the respondents identify themselves as conservatives while only 14% considered themselves liberals, of course the results are going to come out weighted in favor of the conservative news channel.

The stuff about John Edwards is amazing. Simply amazing that he could be like that, use people, use money for his personal dirty business.

Fox? Seriously?Messed up. Well, I stopped watching most news when Tom Brokaw retired. Man, I miss him...

Is it because they're openly right-center? Then again, the link points to a blog that's considered to be no1 by WSJ that belongs to the same owner of Fox. So I don't know, these days, I don't know if I can really trust any 'polls.' I check every news outlet though, local to CNN and Fox. I must admit, sometimes cable news provide more details on stuffs compared to local news. I miss cable news.

At least Fox is upfront about their views, unlike other news stations! I can't stand Campbell Brown and anyone that thinks CNN is fair and unbiased is truly an absolute moron.
