Al Jazeera= 77%, Fox News= 11%
SO FROM THAT HOW DO THEY GET TO THE CONCLUSION OF FOX NEWS BEING "MOST TRUSTED"?
Several reports last week boasted that "Fox News was the most trusted news source" according to a new media survey. I took it at face value at the time...didn't have time to read the whole report or check different sources. It wasn't until a few days later that I had the opportunity to read the whole report.
I tell you... this has all the ingredients of one of those famous planted news stories from this RepubliCON government.
They are telling us that Fox News is the most trusted News Source in America based on what 11% of respondents said? LOL 11%????????
But seeing the headlines from all of the various articles on the web and in newspapers when this report came out last week- "FOX Most Trusted".... you would think that this is actually what the majority of Americans believe. And it's interesting that CNN got the same 11% as Fox, but CNN did not get the same headlines that Fox ended up getting. Hmmmm...
In my statistics class in college my instructor had a name for this kind of manipulation and distortion of numbers. "Bull----".
Every news source that I checked for this story put a different spin on it. It depended on what country and what media organization was doing the reporting. It was mostly the American news organizations that used the headline "Fox News Most Trusted". While the overseas news outlets didn't mention that at all in their headlines (because that was not the major story from the report at all). Most overseas news outlets had a totally different perspective on the story. So it begs the question, why did the American news agencies lead off with the misleading headline "Fox News Most Trusted"?
I chose not to use one of the phony American stories for the link here. I'm using a source outside of the U.S. instead.
One question that the report fails to answer is- What is the connection and relationship between big media news agencies and the governments that they operate in? Several stories mention that people trust the news media more than the government. But no one realizes that the news media often IS the government- the two are often the same thing... they are the same entity.
Another example of slanted news reporting...
