POLL: Fox Would Win Trump’s Fake News Trophy

L to the O to the L:

A plurality of Americans in a new poll think that Fox News deserves the first “Fake News Trophy.” A new poll from the conservative-leaning Rasmussen finds 40 percent of respondents think Fox News should get the Fake News Trophy, which was first suggested by President Trump earlier this week in a tweet.

The second place winner, according to the poll, was CNN, which received 25 percent support. MSNBC followed CNN with 9 percent, and ABC, CBS and NCB all received less than 5 percent support for the Fake News Trophy.

Fifty-three percent of Democrats and 42 percent of voters not affiliated with either major party say Fox News deserves the Fake News Trophy. The poll comes after Trump earlier this week suggested the media should compete for a Fake News trophy. But Trump said the competition shouldn’t include Fox, a network he is known to frequently watch.

    Bullshit, the Whitehouse would win hands down.

  • Tawreos

    No surprise here, Fox has been known to be bullshit by everyone that gets news from any other source whatsoever

  • Treant

    The fact that it’s that low is sad, but looking at the reporting errors on just the few subjects I understand? There are no good news networks.

    • Tawreos

      There can’t be any good news networks as long as ratings are more important than good, responsible journalism

  • bkmn

    They love to be lied to.

  • Tomcat

    Someone needs to actually list falsehoods that have been given out on each of the networks over say the last 6 months. It would be very interesting to say the least.

    • Tomcat

      And the Whitehouse communication director.

      • nocadrummer

        Okay… She wins, hands down!

      How horrible for him to have to live in a world of other people.

    • Todd20036

      Funny how Trump is too afraid to have Fox compete.

      Seeing as how the only news programs it could beat are Breitbart, Alex Jones, etc.

    A study in 2011 showed that Fox News viewers are dumber than people who don’t watch any news.

    • wow….

    • Tawreos

      Fox news viewers have ranked lowest in studies like this since the network first aired.

      Trump loves the uneducated , He doesn’t have to expllain anything he, himself. doesn’t understand

      • Bj Lincoln

        Good one. 🙂

      • Snarkaholic

        Bravo, Ms. S.; you and your pussy are both first rate!

    • Reality.Bites

      What’s truly amazing is how many of them are more malnourished than people who don’t eat any food.

    • jerry

      There were at least two other studies since then, from other universities, that confirmed this.

  • Talisman

    But they say they are fair and balanced!

    • Harley

      And cigarettes don’t cause cancer or are addictive.

    • AmeriCanadian

      Just like how North Korea calls itself Democratic People’s Republic of Korea. Doesn’t make it so.

  • Halou

    Well, Rasmussen said it so it must be true? Trump always loves their presidential popularity polling numbers for being way above the general negative trend.

  • Steven B

    Who are the 47% of Democrats who don’t think that Fox News doesn’t deserve the fake news trophy?

    • Friday

      Russian poll-bots? 🙂

      That’s one fully smackable face.

      Quick… Where’s my 2 by 4?

      • JAKvirginia

        Oh, shit. I used it to finish the deck. Oh, fuck it! Here, use the deck.

    • Nowhereman

      That’s a good look for him.

      • Gianni

        It’s also the only look the camera ever sees. It’s that stupid look that says, ” I really don’t grasp or understand a single thing you’re saying to me.”

    • Stogiebear

      Even his smile looks more genuine that Shitgibbon’s.

  • Gustav2

    Only fifty-three percent of Democrats say Fox News deserves the Fake News Trophy?

    • samcollins

      That was my first thought

    • ChrisMorley

      The other 47% of Democrats don’t ever watch Faux News, so they can’t say.

  • Buford

    One lasting impact of this stupid tweet by Trump is that it confirmed that our TV news media can now accurately and reliably be grouped as Fox vs. non-Fox.

  • Benjamin Eugene NElson

    Gotta exclude Fox or the contest wont’ be a fair one at all right?

  • Pete Wascher

    let the voters decide who’s eligible for fake news trophy.

  • Harshan

    Fox News, Fake News, Fake News Trophy, and Fake President all go together well..

  • Nowhereman

    Trump is not my favorite president. He’s my favorite so-called president. When the 2016 election is declared null and void and the real winner is seated, then Trump will be my favorite so-called ex-president.

  • Gianni

    Donnie says the competition shouldn’t include FUX News because he likes them and because they keep his ego inflated, especially shithead Shammity. Actually, Donnie would most personally feel the sting and the blow if they were declared the trophy winner.
