More than a quarter of U.S. voters named Fox News as the TV news or commentary source they trust the most, putting the channel well ahead of its cable and network rivals, according to a poll released Wednesday.

About 28 percent of U.S. voters named Fox News as the TV news/commentary source they trust the most, followed by CNN at 13 percent, according to the Suffolk University/USA Today poll.

CBS was next at 9 percent, followed by NBC at 8 percent, ABC at 7 percent, MSNBC at 6 percent, Comedy Central at 5 percent and C-SPAN at 3 percent. About one-fifth of voters said they were undecided.

Fox News and CNN have been running first and second on that question in other recent Suffolk/USA Today surveys as well. In December, Fox News had been in first at about 27 percent and CNN was at 15 percent. And a survey taken in late September had Fox at 23 percent and CNN at 15 percent.
