A new study released by the Brookings Institution and the Public Religion Research Institute revealed that Americans trust Jon Stewart for their news more than MSNBC.

The organizations studied immigration and the media, with a focus on which news outlets Americans trusted for their news. Unsurprisingly, Fox News came in first with 25% with Broadcast News in a close second at 23%. CNN and Public Television follows in third and fourth place with 17% and 12%, respectively.

Although ‘The Daily Show with Jon Stewart’ was in fifth place with 8%, it beat out MSNBC that came in dead last with only 5%.

As the Huffington Post points out, “the findings come just weeks after another study showed that Stephen Colbert did a better job at informing people about campaign finance issues than traditional news outlets.”
