    The SRNMT is a poll of some 2000 Americans on how much they trust/distrust various outlets. I did not make this ranking myself (or Fox News wouldn't be higher than The Economist), but it gives a "scientific" idea of which outlets are considered trustworthy by the American public.

    I hope to update the thread with outlets based in other countries (e.g. the U.K.), but since the vast majority of our frequent-use sources are U.S.-based this should be a good starting point.
