Poll: Democrats Prefer Fox News to New York Times

By John Lott   |   Thursday, 17 Sep 2009 09:04 AM

Whom do Democrats trust more for news: Fox News or the New York Times? With all the vitriol directed against Fox News, one would think that it is a no brainer. But a new Pew Research Center for the People & the Press poll shows that it is Fox News. While 43 percent of Democrats have a positive view of Fox News, 39 percent of Democrats feel the same way about the New York Times.

Of course among Republicans or Independents it isn't even a close contest. 72 percent of Republicans have a favorable view of Fox News compared to only 16 percent who have a favorable view of the New York Times. Almost twice as many independents have a favorable view of Fox than the New York Times.

The survey was done from July 22-26 so it doesn't reflect how the New York Times ignored the Van Jones story or the recent controversy over ACORN.
