If we really had truth in advertising laws, they wouldn’t even be able to call it Fox “News”.
It should really be called something like Fox Propaganda or Fox Positive Reinforcement for Republican Paranoiacs or, at the very least, Fox Fantasy.
God knows they don’t report facts….
I’m convinced watching Fox “News” more than 5 minutes a day is a leading cause of Alzheimer’s Disease…..
It has to kill more brain cells more than heavy drinking…..
From Political Wire:
A new Fairleigh Dickinson PublicMind Poll finds that the Sunday morning political shows on television “do the most to help people learn about current events, while some outlets, especially Fox News, lead people to be even less informed than those who they don’t watch any news at all.”
“For example, people who watch Fox News, the most popular of the 24-hour cable news networks, are 18-points less likely to know that Egyptians overthrew their government than those who watch no news at all (after controlling for other news sources, partisanship, education and other demographic factors). Fox News watchers are also 6-points less likely to know that Syrians have not yet overthrown their government than those who watch no news.”
These results mirror a University of Maryland study published last year.
