Hey, do you not have eyes, ears and a discerning sense of when people are trying to influence your actions and rhetoric? Then you may be shocked, SHOCKED to hear the results of a recent survey.
Fox News viewers are the least informed about political issues. Although I doubt that’s a surprise to anybody at this point – the results from these surveys are more consistent than taxes and the seasons. If you air something on Fox News, it will go through five-eight brain filters that have been set up to protect somebody from running outside and chewing on bark, for that is their natural reaction. Some people watch Fox News because they have a morbid sense of curiosity, but they’re harming the greater good. In a study conducted at the University of Maryland, researchers found that increased viewing of Fox also lead to an increase of misinformed opinions. And what did Fox News? They tried to game the University of Maryland, by doing the exact thing they do with every news story – casting aspersions in their direction.
Fox News’ senior VP for news remarked–
The latest Princeton Review ranked the University of Maryland among the top schools for having ‘Students Who Study The Least’ and being the ‘Best Party School’ – given these fine academic distinctions, we’ll regard the study with the same level of veracity it was ‘researched’ with.
– it’s like they can’t turn the switch off, can they?
