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.
Colbert, of course, is taking over for David Letterman on CBS' The Late Show next year, where he will likely still outpace MSNBC in viewer trust.
