The American Civil Cold War

Fox Most Trusted Name In TV News ?

Fox is the most trusted television news network in the country, according to a new poll out Tuesday.
A Public Policy Polling nationwide survey of 1,151 registered voters Jan. 18-19 found that 49 percent of Americans trusted Fox News, 10 percentage points more than any other network.

At first I was surprised, but then it made perfect sense. American voters are split almost exactly 50/50. The elections of 2000, 2002, and 2004 proved that. 2006 and 2008 was not so different to negate the trend.

So from a purely political standpoint the conservative "FOX" brand news got support from 49% of the registered voters and the "Liberal Media" brand news (in the aggregate) got 51% support.

Now go back to that article above and read the comments at the end. There were 1110 comments. A random sample of 100 comments show conservative name calling and anger in 73% of the comments. With 25% showing liberal disbelief and 2% saying "so what".

What does all that mean?

It means "It Ain't Over Till It Is Over".

The American Civil Cold War is still being fought.

Kind of explains a couple bloggers I've visited. Their reference for
American History is Glenn Beck and world history Jonah Goldberg. They actually quote these 'truthful' references. Then, ironically, they deride US education...Shall I laugh or cry?

I wonder if FOX is cause or effect?

The conservatives have said for years that the liberal media was brain washing the people. So, does that apply to Fox as well?
