According to a 60 Minutes/Vanity Fair poll - most Americans consider cable news to be the most respected and trusted news source. This flied in the face of conventional wisdom that the big three networks, ABC, NBC and CBS will always be the go-to stations for breaking news coverage. CNN leads the pack with Fox news following closely behind. In fact the big three networks only get 13% of the total vote as a trusted news source.
The most respected print news sources follows television as well. The New York Times has an eight percent following and the Wall Street Journal comes in with a seven percent total.
Interestingly enough the Internet was not included in this poll as a trusted news source. You can count on that changing as well in the years ahead.
