More Americans believe Fox News compared with its competitors, a poll found.

Fox News was rated the most trustworthy by 18.4 percent of respondents in a survey by Robert Morris University Polling Institute, according to The Washington Free Beacon. Fox was followed by CNN at 14.1 percent and MSNBC at 4.4 percent.

The Free Beacon also reported that 37.1 percent of those polled said MSNBC was biased, 36.6 percent said CNN, and Fox News came in first with 47.8 percent.

Robert Morris surveyed 1,004 people nationwide "with proportional contributions from each state via an online survey held May 6-13. Of those surveyed, 31.8 percent identified themselves as Democrats and 25.7 percent as Republicans," according to the Free Beacon.

"I don’t think it’s any question that the perception of bias plays a role in why people do or don’t watch certain networks over others," Anthony Moretti, associate professor of communications at RMU, who helped conduct the poll, told the Free Beacon.
