See the consistencies?
- Rush Limbaugh is the most distrusted of two of the three groups and is second in the other group.
- Fox News is #2 on those two groups above, but #1 among Millenials in distrust.
- Glenn Beck holds down #3 for all groups.
- OK, how about evil liberals? MSNBC is #4 in distrust among Baby Boomers and Generation X, but only #8 among Millenials.
CNN does well, and certain news outlets must look at the Millenial numbers and think they'll be well positioned in coming years. Unfortunately (for them), trust is not the same as audience. Think about it. Fox News kicks CNN's ass in audience while at the same time doing much more poorly in trust/distrust. Being liked is not the same as being, well, watched or read. Some hate you, but some love you -- the essence of a partisan fragmentation.
