Trusting the Media, or Not

A Study released today has Fox News and the most trusted, and least trusted, of television news organizations.

And here's a fun bit:
While strong majorities of survey respondents (73.4%) believed the news media (newspapers, radio, TV and the internet) should provide equal time and space for multiple sides of issues, a similar percentage (70.9%) said the same media should be free from government involvement and allow the market to determine programming demand.

You can read the rest yourself.  The methodology appears sound, the results -- a bit distressing.  Then again, this is nation that adores crap like Dancing with American Idol or whatever the hell it's called, so pfffft.
