Not that it's a shock to anyone, but a new survey out finds that people whom watch only fox, are the least informed of anyone, even less than people that don't even watch the news.

People that watch NPR are found to be the most well informed and educated.

FOX scores were dragged down by dumb liberals who watch FOX news.

As were MSNBC's by dumb right wingers. If you go solely off of conservatives that watch fox, they would be in 5th.
Though with only liberals that watch MSNBC, they would be in 1st by a longshot

It is no surprise here since most republicans that I know only quote Fox news when they want to make a completely false point.

The Poynter Institute was formed in 1975 by Nelson Poynter, then owner and chairman of the St Petersburg Times, known to be one of the most liberal rags written in the U.S. He formed the Institute dedicated to teaching the liberal way of reporting news.
So, considering the source of this thread, it's just more liberal lies.

Anyone who relies and believes in US news is misinformed. Or maybe it's disinformed ?
Black propaganda is rampant with our MSM.

Absolutely. Fox tells the right wing goons the fodder they want to hear, not the actual truth. That's likely the main reason why they are so un-informed.

Don't like the results so try and spin it any way you can, a right wing staple. Though if you actually read the article, you would see in the first line they link their source

I agree Fox news makes people dumb, but no more so than CNN or MSNBC.




Confirmed: Fox News makes people dumb - YouTube

Uber-liberals will believe anything that headlines; "new poll shows conservatives/republicans are less intelligent than liberals because _____add any reason here_____!"

I'd say the poll believers, and especially the poll re-posters, must be dumber than dirt. This thread makes a brick seem intelligent.


I guess I should be glad that I mostly listen to talk radio. A poll recently came out that the typical talk radio audience has an IQ 10 points higher than the audiences of other media, including internet.
