Although tRump asserted Fox News should be left out of the contest, a Rasmussen poll found that about 40 percent of Americans think Fox News should receive the "Fake News Trophy." CNN came in second place with 25 percent of votes, followed by MSNBC with 9 percent.

Most polls are worthless. It all depends on who you ask, and when, etc. People also take perverse delight in lying when polled--results are often fudged--you never know if they've been massaged, etc. As always, polls are no more than an attempt to manipulate public opinion. I will say that after decades of observation, I've never seen it as bad for fake news as it has been for the last two years--mostly from politically naive and biased entities like the NYT and the WaPo. CNN included. Certain segments of FOX are bad for Fake News--like Shepard Smith, especially (I had a dog named "Shep" as a boy--always reminds me of that.) When it comes to politics, they all seem to think that "freedom of the press" is "the right to lie" to the public. It isn't, as they've been learning to their mortification. Basically, I think they are mostly a bunch of lazy drunks who've decided that making up stuff is simply easier and more fun than working to dig up facts and reporting them objectively. Objective journalism is not difficult at all, but lying is even easier, no doubt...;) They've shot themselves in the head, mainly, as their credibility has never been lower. The negative reputations they've earned are well deserved, imo.

LOL, Shep Smith is the most honest reporter at Fox, and he's "the worst?"

The NYTimes is in the tank for Trump, but they're fake news? That softball interview they did with Trump yesterday was journalistic malpractice. At least the WaPo has been doing good reporting this year.

Seriously, you live in a bubble Walt. Post some links to back up your assertions. Otherwise, you're just talking out of your ass.

Everyone has some degree of thinking things they disagree with are wrong, but Walt is the worst here. More, even, than MA or littleme, one of whom believed pizza gate and the other believes flat earthers make good points.
