Pew: Fox Approval Down, CNN/Local Papers Up

Pew's annual media survey report is out today. Not surprisingly, public opinion of the media overall is at a record low, with Republicans citing a higher dissatisfaction than Democrats (apparently reality still has a liberal bias). E & P Pub spots a more interesting set of responses though:

Despite all the hype about Fox News’ growing popularity, the survey found that its favorable rating had declined from 61% to 55% from July 2007 to 2009 while CNN actually climbed a bit from 50% to 60%. This trend held true for unfavorable ratings as well.

And, surprise, this is topped by the 65% who give a favorable nod to their local daily newspaper or national paper they read most.
