Fox News wants to tell people the truth, including how no one trusts them.
The network did just that Sunday when it had Republican strategist Frank Luntz on to talk about how President Trump was not getting enough credit for the economic recovery.
Host Howard Kurtz asked Luntz what is keeping all that sweet attention away from our commander in chief, and he posited that it is obviously the media.
Kurtz, hoping to add more proof to that garbage fire of an argument, asked for a graphic of a poll to be put on screen. And that’s when things took a turn for the worse.
What appeared was a Monmouth University poll that asked people who they trusted more: a news network or Trump? All responders said that they trusted news more than Trump, but Fox News came in last in terms of trustworthiness.
It seemed at the time to be an accident.
After the graphic mistakenly appeared, Kurtz immediately asked that his producer take it down. He brought it back up later in the segment to highlight how news sources are trusted more than the president.
UPDATE: April 9, 2018, 12:50 p.m. EDT
Kurtz defended the use of the poll on a few social media posts, wanting to highlight the disparity in trust between media and the president.
