Fox News Host Airs Graphic Showing Nobody Trusts Fox News

Fox News host Howard Kurtz panicked after accidentally displaying a graphic that showed the network is the least-trusted major American news network.

The poll showed that nearly half of US citizens trusted CNN and 45 percent trusted CNBC more than President Trump. The same poll found Americans also trusted CNN and MSNBC more than the president, though by a larger margin.

CNN ranked most trusted, with 48% to Trump's 35%. The news agency had published a story with the headline, "Fox News mistakenly posts graphic showing it lags in trust", which has since been corrected.

"Those are pretty startling numbers", Kurtz said.

'Hold off. Take that down please'. "Has Donald Trump won his campaign to make everything think that we are awash in fake news?".

The Associated Press should be embarrassed by a story that utterly distorts what happened yesterday on my program "Media Buzz".

The president frequently watches and reacts to Fox News programming, and the public relations chairman of the Syrian American Council interrupted an interview Monday to ask Trump to respond to the chemical weapon attack that killed dozens in Douma.

Kurtz took to Twitter on Monday afternoon to clarify that the graphic was meant to be aired and all coverage that it wasn't is a "lie".

"The AP reported my request to take down the graphic and ended the story there, creating a false impression by not mentioning that I called for the very same graphic shortly afterward", Kurtz added. Forty-two percent said they believed mainstream outlets try to push an agenda with the news they report. The graphic that appeared on screen however, showed the results of a different poll.

The AP published a correction on Monday, noting that "the graphic was taken down because it was used during the wrong segment, and was used again on the show". Thirty-seven percent said they trust both equally.
