If you’re a liberal, you probably believe the most divisive news outlet in America is FOX News. But you’d be wrong. According to a media polling firm, the most polarizing media brand is CNN.

No Shocker at All: CNN Named Most Polarizing Media Brand of 2018
At first glance, it might seem that the conservative-leaning Fox News Channel would be considered more politically divisive than such liberal cable networks as MSNBC and CNN.
However, that’s not what the Morning Consult polling firm found when it surveyed 336,370 Americans over the previous three months to determine which brands divide Democrats and Republicans the most.
According to an article written by TVNewswer’s A. J. Katz:
From award shows to soda commercials, politics is increasingly seeping into most facets of American culture.
As a result, brands that were once dutifully neutral have taken bold stands, and others have been involuntarily dragged into controversy.
“As one might have guessed,” Katz noted, “media outlets comprise the overwhelming majority of the the top 15 most divisive brands.”
“According to the survey,” he stated, “CNN was the most politically divisive media outlet in America.”
CNN wasn’t always this bad. They’ve always leaned left but since the election of Donald Trump, they’ve gone completely off the deep end.
