News Corp corrupt?

Yeah, but so is CNN, MSNBC, ABC, CBS, NBC and NPR, along with scores of propaganda rags like Newsweek and Time Magazine, along with every newspaper.

Wall Street Journal is still respectable. Isn't it?

FNC is the most trusted and most statistically balanced cable news channel (per all credible nonpartisan studies and polls in the U.S.). Anyone who thinks simply spouting out "Fox News" as if that's supposed to "prove" something is a small-minded hack running in a special Lefty world of their own creation instead of reality.

@canofsand - It's a glitch that the OP was able to post a poll with only one question. That is being corrected.

I am curious, what are these studies? On Politifact.com Fox News has "lie of the year" three years running, and more "pants of fire" and lies than any other network. I would love to see some stats. Without digging too much, a 2004 a Rasmussen study showed that it was only the second least trusted news source with CBS being the most after the Bush National Guard scandal. A 2010 OSU study found that Fox News viewers are 66% more likely to believe rumors and not facts.The Project on Excellence in Journalism report in 2006[44] showed that 68 percent of Fox cable stories contained personal opinions, as compared to MSNBC at 27 percent and CNN at 4 percent.

And that's just a few. Fox is bias towards the right. All studies suggest it, and News Corp is being sued by their investors for it. Not a bunch of liberals, but banks and hedge funds who are losing money because of it.

News Corp is also being sued by its investors for corporate funds being used for Murdoch's political agenda.

RT and Al Jazeera English are pretty much the only news sources I trust.
