This has got to be some kind of a joke:
BBC, Reuters, and the Media Center recently conducted a worldwide poll asking respondents about their level of trust in the news that they receive from governmental sources, newspapers and television/radio/internet.
In three countries governments scored higher than the media. In the US, 67% of respondents said they trusted the government compared with 59% prepared to put their trust in the media.
But here's the joker: in the United States, the single most trusted news outlet is FOX News.
