Fox News, long the ratings leader amongst cable news nets, is now also considered the BEST news channel, according to a new national poll.
Of 1,180 adults surveyed by Poll Position, 36% chose Fox News as the best news outlet, followed by CNN’s 28% and MSNBC’s 17%. Somewhat predictably, when broken down by party affiliation, 62% of Republicans preferred Fox, while 13% chose CNN and 6% preferred MSNBC. Amongst Democrats, 41% preferred CNN, 31% chose MSNBC and just 10% said Fox News was the best. But most significantly, amongst self-identified Independents, 36% say that Fox News is the best channel, followed by CNN at 31% and MSNBC at just 9%.
Poll Position is a relatively new company founded by long-time CNN executive Eason Jordan. Eason was very highly respected during his 23 year tenure at CNN and I’m sure that this new venture is highly professional in its methodology.
