Who’s the new most trusted newscaster in America?

According to an online Time Magazine poll, Jon Stewart is now America’s most trusted news anchor.

You can read the Huffington Post article here.

The poll results are posted here so you can find out how much your home state trusts Jon Stewart!

With a poll like this, it’s important to consider what we talked about in class today to determine if the results are biased.  This poll cannot be completely accurate because it was given online and only certain demographics visit the Time Magazine website.  It seems unlikely that most people actually consider Stewart the most trusted newscaster.  However, if you assume that these results are accurate, what do they tell us about how people view the media and the credibility of newscasters?
