Fox News accidentally runs a poll showing how little people trust them
One think you should neeeeeever do while reporting on Fox News is tell people the truth.
The network got itself into just that pickle Sunday when it had Republican strategist Frank Luntz on to talk about how President Trump was not getting enough credit for the economic recovery.
Host Howard Kurtz asked Luntz what is keeping all that sweet attention away from our commander in chief, and he posited that it is obviously the media.
Kurtz, hoping to add more proof to that garbage fire of an argument, asked for a graphic of a poll to be put on screen. And that’s when things took a turn for the worse.
What appeared was a Monmouth University poll that asked people who they trusted more: a news network or Trump? All responders said that they trusted news more than Trump, but Fox News came in last in terms of trustworthiness.
After the graphic mistakenly appeared, Kurtz immediately demanded that his producer take it down.
Later in the segment, Kurtz referred back to the poll for the sake of saying that news sources are trusted more than the president. He also inflated the shown number, saying that it was 37 percent.
So who can we trust? According to the people, not Fox News.
