Most Consider The Web Most Reliable Source of News

A Zogby Poll, commissioned by IFC, found 37.6% of those asked consider the Internets the most reliable source of news. 20.3% consider national TV news most reliable and 16% say radio is the most reliable source.

Also revealed:

39.3% of those surveyed trust FOX News most for the issues they consider most important, followed by CNN with 16% and MSNBC with 15%.

72.6% believe the news they read and see is biased.

88.7% Republican and 57.5% Democrat respondents describe the news media as biased.

Zogby surveyed 3,472 adults nationwide on November 5 and 6. The poll was conducted on behalf of IFC which this week debuted a new show called The Media Project which, "reveals the truth behind TV news."

Interesting. I don't know anyone who considered print media a reliable source of news.

Internet as a reliable source? Where do all of these people think this up?
