A plurality of likely US voters said Fox News deserves Trump's 'Fake News Trophy'



A plurality of likely U.S. voters said Fox News deserves the first “Fake News Trophy,” according to a new poll.

Forty percent think that Fox News deserves the “Trophy” recently suggested by President Trump in the survey released Thursday by the right-leaning Rasmussen Reports.

CNN ranks second with 25 percent, followed by MSNBC at 9 percent, ABC at 4 percent, CBS at 3 percent and NBC at 2 percent.

Six percent said that the distinction should go to another media outlet, while 11 percent remain undecided.

Thursday’s results also found that many respondents consider “fake news” a serious challenge facing America.

Sixty-five percent consider “fake news” a “big problem,” with 42 percent of that total describing it as a “very big” issue.

Thirty-two percent disagree that “fake news” is a major struggle, including 16 percent who do not view it as a problem at all.

Rasmussen additionally discovered that 51 percent believe current media coverage of events and political topics has eroded in past years.

Nineteen percent think it has improved instead, and 27 percent rate it as approximately the same as previous times.

Trump on Monday verbally jabbed America’s media networks, suggesting they stage a competition for the “FAKE NEWS TROPHY.”

“We should have a contest as to which of the Networks, plus CNN and not including Fox, is the most dishonest, corrupt and/or distorted in its political coverage of your favorite President (me),” he wrote.

“They are all bad,” Trump continued. “Winner to receive the FAKE NEWS TROPHY!”

Trump has repeatedly labeled media reports he finds inaccurate or biased “fake news,” focusing particular disdain on CNN this month.

The president has repeatedly praised Fox News’s “Fox & Friends” in 2017, however, and has been known to tweet about segments he saw after they aired.

Rasmussen conducted its latest survey of 1,000 likely U.S. voters via telephone interviews from Nov. 28-29. It has a 3 percent margin of error.
