MSNBC has once again apologized abjectly and, this time, fired an employee for a bigoted tweet that the network’s president described as “offensive and wrong.” I wrote about the episode last night.
MSNBC’s string of debacles has taken a toll. Public Policy Polling finds that MSNBC is now America’s least trusted news source, tied with its parent NBC and–wait for it!–Comedy Central. PPP asked respondents which network they trust the most. The results:
Fox News: 35%
ABC News: 11%
CBS News: 6%
NBC News: 3%
Comedy Central: 3%
That’s a runaway for Fox, actually.
