The Most Trusted News Media in the U.S.

The University of Missouri's Reynolds Journalism Institute has released the results of a survey seeking to determine who the most trusted news sources in the U.S. 

Not surprisingly, the results of the survey show that the overtly partisan media sources were among the least trusted. Examples include Occupy Democrats and Breitbart.

The most trusted sources include several of the large, nationally-known public broadcasters (PBS, BBC, NPR) and many major daily newspapers. Overall, newspapers seemed to score better than TV news, including both networks and cable.
