Both NPR and PBS operate independently and are not censored or controlled by government officials, differentiating them from other nations’ propaganda outlets, such as Russia’s RT.
A recent Pew survey showed that 31 percent of U.S. adults trust NPR, while 10 percent distrust the media outlet. ABC News is the most-trusted media organization in the U.S., with 48 percent saying they trust the outlet. It was followed by NBC News and CNN (both at 47 percent). CBS News was ranked third (at 45 percent).
