Fox News was once again voted the most distrusted and trust name in news, according to a new poll released Thursday.

Public Policy Polling asked people to name their most distrusted and trusted sources of news. Thirty-five percent of respondents said that they trust Fox News the most — more than other cable news networks, broadcast networks and Comedy Central.

On the flip side, 33 percent of people said that they trusted Fox News the least, which was more than any other news outlet included in the poll.

The organization said the results seemed to be split across political lines, noting, "Fox News is by far and away the most trusted source of GOP voters." Sixty-nine percent of Republican respondents said that the cable news network is their most trusted news source.

According to PPP, Fox News also received the distinction of most and least-trusted news source in 2013 and 2012.

PPP also asked respondents whether they trusted each news outlet individually. PBS was trusted by the most people (57 percent), while Comedy Central was trusted by the least people (29 percent).
