Best answer: Fox reaffirms the corporate philosophy. Their pundits are the least accurate. Trump who seems to get much of his "news" from them is clearly misinformed about many things.
Fox News (which is not news) is most certainly not the “most trusted news network.” (In fact, Fox News is not really a news network.)
It may (at the moment) have some popularity. It may have higher ratings than some other news networks (most of which, actually do present news).
It is certainly more popular than CSpan. However, CSpan would certainly be ranked as “more trusted,” by almost any measure.
Fox News has never even won a single award for journalism (perhaps, because it does not actually do journalism).
The Jerry Springer television program actually is “more popular” than PBS’ Nova series, or 60 Minutes. However, I doubt if you will find too many who would refer to the Jerry Springer television program as “trusted.”
Since its 1997 creation by Australian Rupert Murdoch, Fox has never won any of the most prominent journalism awards.
Consider the George F. Peabody Award, perhaps the most prestigious honor in electronic media and given by the University of Georgia, hardly a bastion of liberalism, since 1941. From Fox's arrival in 1997, PBS has the most Peabodys, with 19 in the news category, followed closely by CBS (16) and BBC (14). PBS also has topped the competition for the Alfred I. DuPont-Columbia University Awards honoring excellence in broadcast journalism, with 23 prizes. CBS News has been the most honored (25 times) with the Edward R. Murrow Award, named for the great broadcast journalist whose World War II reporting from London was unparalleled.
Aside from no awards, Fox has yet to match CBS, NBC and ABC news giants such as Murrow; Walter Cronkite, once TV's most respected man; Tom Brokaw, who authored “The Greatest Generation”; David Brinkley/Chet Huntley; or Peter Jennings, John Chancellor, Diane Sawyer and Barbara Walters, among others. Today’s major network anchors, Lester Holt, David Muir and Anthony Mason, are superb in their own right.
Fox is packaged as entertainment. So it remains popular.
