Fox Information Graphic Claims It is Least-Trusted Cable Information Community

Ismael LynchApr 10, 2018

Fox News host Howard Kurtz blasted reports that said his Sunday show mistakenly posted a graphic that showed the cable network is less trusted than its competitors.

The controversy arose on Sunday, when Kurtz had pollster Frank Luntz on his show "Media Buzz" to discuss the media's coverage of Donald Trump, and how the largely negative coverage has affected the president's approval rating.

A guest on Fox News directly addressed President TrumpDonald John TrumpChinese president vows to "significantly lower" auto import tariff amid trade dispute McConnell sends warning over nomination votes Kudlow confronted over attacks on Obama deficit after rejecting CBO's projections on Trump budget MORE on Monday morning, imploring the commander in chief to "take swift and decisive action" in response to an alleged chemical attack on civilians in Syria.

Kurtz quickly realized the mistake and said: "That is not the graphic we are looking for. Hold off, take it down, please".

Fox Information aired a graphic calling itself the least-trusted information community on tv - and it's getting quite a lot of consideration.

Fox News accidentally aired an unflattering graphic about media trust among Americans. That CNN and MSNBC viewers place more trust in their outlet over Trump is probably more a reflection of their viewers not trusting Trump rather than the relative quality of their journalism.

Kurtz went after the shops - together with the Related Press, which later corrected their story - on social media.

"The AP reported my request to take down the graphic and ended the story there, creating a false impression by not mentioning that I called for the very same graphic shortly afterward", Kurtz added.

After putting things in context, the host asked the producer to air the graphic again, and once again the same graphic picture, that claimed FOX news was the least trusted network, showed on the screen. The chart showed that CNN came in at 48 percent trustworthy, while MSNBC was in second at 45 percent. Another 37 percent said they trusted both equally.
