Americans trust only Fox News among the major TV news operations in the country, according to a new poll.

A new survey by Public Policy Polling looking at perceptions of ABC News, CBS News, CNN, Fox News, and NBC News finds Fox as the only one that more people say they trust than distrust. 49 percent say they trust it to 37 percent who do not.

CNN does next best at a 39/41 spread, followed by NBC at 35/44, CBS at 32/46, and ABC at 31/46, according to Public Policy Polling.

“Predictably there is a lot of political polarization in which outlets people trust,” the poll’s authors write. “74 percent of Republicans trust Fox News, but no more than 23 percent trust any of the other four sources. We already knew that conservatives don't trust the mainstream media but this data is a good prism into just how deep that distrust runs.

“For Democrats the numbers are a complete opposite- a majority trust all of ABC, CBS, CNN, and NBC while only 30 percent have faith in Fox News. Continuing the trend in our polling over the last few months that independents hate everything, a plurality of them distrust all five outlets we looked at.”
