OK, think about this.
FOX News is in the CABLE News category, like MSNBC and CNN.
ABC, NBC and CBS are BROADCAST NETWORK NEWS, it's a different category.
FOX is Number One (just barely for now) in CABLE NEWS.

Ten times as many people watch broadcast network news as watch FOX News, even if they watch CBS on cable, it counts as "broadcast".

I was going to point out how alarming it is that CNN, the network that just got caught redheaded staging a Muslim protest video, and the fakest of all fake news, could be so trusted. Then I looked at the research period and saw it's from early 2014, back before CNN went off the deep end. Okay.

The most noteworthy thing I see is that liberals tends to trust most news sources, whereas, conservatives tend to distrust most. This gels with the well-established fact that most media outlets lean left.

The only other thing of note I noticed was that there tended to be more diversity between consistently conservative and mostly conservative, than between consistently liberal and mostly liberal. This suggests to me that conservatives are more open minded and less dogmatic.

Quite a few studies have been done about the media leaning left. As it turns out there are reasons for the left leaning media. 1) Geographical explanation: The big guns of the mainstream media reside in New York, Washington and other metropolises, where liberals live on top of other liberals. 2) The Crusader explanation: People are called to journalism because they have a sense of mission--of discovery--of scooping and exposing light in dark places. These journalists/writers have been influenced by scandals in government and business. There is a phrase in journalism that goes something like this. Our job is to afflict the comfortable and comfort the afflicted. 3) The Education explanation: Young people are fired up--ready to conquer. Hiring practices begin with elite universities and experienced journalists who have earned recognition through their persuasive OPs---all of which came from their university professors and classes. Educated people believe in causes that stem from justice, fairness, truth, and decency. As a journalist they can bring some of the injustices in this world to the surface--expose them and hopefully correct them.
AND that takes us right back to the Crusader.

I'm glad you're keeping an eye on me, Skid. Now perhaps you could persuade others to post their sources?? In the meantime, you need to review your term "fake news" article. Opinion pieces are not fake news. They are opinion. This piece states my opinion (and theirs) perfectly.
Fake news: Fake news, or hoax news, refers to false information or propaganda published under the guise of being authentic news. One of the more colorful definitions of fake news comes from PolitiFact: "Fake news is made-up stuff, masterfully manipulated to look like credible journalistic reports that are easily spread online to large audiences willing to believe the fictions and spread the word."
