The following chart is a bit outdated (it's from 2014), but it's a good study with diverse leanings. It presents the trust levels of various news sources by ideological group.
Which of your news sources do you follow? Were they as trusted as you expected?

Finally, let me know if there are resources you think I should look at.
You are either growing or dying.
