How’s this for fair and balanced? A Public Policy Polling survey released Wednesday found that 46 percent of those questioned do not trust Fox News—although another 41 percent reported loyalty to the network. Beyond that, Democrats trust any other network more than Fox, while Republicans trusted only the network. Surprisingly, Democrats’ most trust network is not MSNBC, it’s PBS (are they all just enjoying Downton Abbey first?), with MSNBC coming in third. Meanwhile, Fox News could get a new high-profile name: Scott Brown. The former Massachusetts senator is reportedly in talks with the network to offer commentary.
