Poll: Fox Fans Believe Media Is Enemy

Washington Post graphic
Suffolk University has polled people about their response to President Trump’s tweet tossing the “fake news” media into a basket of anti-Americanism.

For the most part, people thought that the designation of media outlets as being the “enemy of the American people” was unfair. Only a third of respondents said they agreed with Trump.  However, two-thirds of fans of Fox News thought otherwise.

But Suffolk also askrd people it polls what news outlet they trust the most, allowing us an interesting cross-tabulation. Those who trust every single network except Fox News were more likely to say they disagreed than agreed, by a 22 to 72 percent margin overall.
