PBS Named America’s Most Trusted Institution for 11th Consecutive Year

PBS and its member stations were again named #1 in trust among nationally known institutions, and called an “excellent” use of tax dollars by the American public in a national poll for the 11th year in a row.  This same survey found that the American public considers PBS KIDS the most educational TV/media brand, the safest place for children to watch television, the safest online media destination, as well as the top provider of content that helps children learn reading, math and essential skills.

The research was conducted in January 2014 by the independent, non-partisan research firm ORC International.  To learn more about how PBS and local member stations are trusted, valued and essential to communities across the country, visit
