Jon Stewart isn't even a real news broadcaster, but the Comedy Central figure is more trusted to deliver news than MSNBC, a new study found.
According to a new survey by the Brookings Institution and the Public Religion Research Institute, the public trusts him more than a 24/7 news channel.
The organizations did a study about immigration and the media that contained within it a broader question about which news outlet the public trusts most.
Fox News came in first, as per usual; the network has been consistently named both the most and the least trusted name in news. Let's hear it for polarization!
Unfortunately for MSNBC, it was dead last, with just 5 percent of Americans saying they trusted it most ... 8 percent, by comparison, chose The Daily Show.
Another study showed that Comedy Central's Stephen Colbert did a better job at informing people about campaign finance issues than traditional outlets.
