Definitive proof that the “Fair and Balanced” cable news channel has arrived: When asked where they get their news, Fox News is specifically named by Americans more than any other source on TV, the Internet, print and radio, according to a new Gallup poll.
In total, most Americans (55 percent) say they get their current events information from TV with 22 percent not specifying which channel or station. But out of respondents who identified the exact source, 8 percent said Fox News. CNN was just behind with 7 percent.
MSNBC along with CBS, NBC and ABC were named by 1 percent or less of respondents.
Twenty-one percent said they get their news somewhere online, 9 percent said they get it from print sources and 6 percent said radio.
