The Murdoch-owned Fox News in the US has had its credibility dealt another blow after it published a graphic during a live news broadcast that showed it was the least trustworthy news source when compared to rivals CNN and MSNBC.
Fox News, of course, has been lambasted of late for its right-wing, pro-Trump stance and for apparently publishing fake news stories.
On a segment on Monday night on its “Media Buzz” program, the graphic showed that only 30 per cent of respondents to a poll by Monmouth University trusted the broadcaster.
Media Buzz host, Howard Kurtz, immediately snapped: “That is not the graphic we are looking for. Hold off. Take that down, please.”
Kurtz has since claimed it was all a technical error, as the graphic was supposed to be shown against another question later in the program. The graphic that appeared related to an unrelated question to do with trust in cable news outlets. Anyway, check out the marvellous misfortune below:
