MSNBC rates below Fox for credibility

In fact-checking videos and articles on MSNBC and Fox News, Newsguard found that both failed to “gather and present information responsibly.” But MSNBC rated five points lower than Fox, cited for not publishing corrections and failing to disclose its liberal stance. MSNBC also did not identify website or network leaders. (PressGazette, July 22, 2022, by Bron Maher)

Jones quoted Oliver Darcy, CNN media reporter, who pointed out that MSNBC opinion operated in the “world of facts and reality. Fox is spinning its own reality.” Jones pointed out that many on Fox News perpetuated the lie that the 2020 election was stolen from Donald Trump.
