What's so funny about this is that Fox is pretty much the only station right now NOT just re-broadcasting the governments view of events but actually creating a dialogue and exposing corruption.<br />
The people who call Fox watchers "sheeple" are the ones advocating that only one side of the argument - the governments side - gets broadcast. How funny and slightly pathetic is that?
Mystic - And MSNBC, CBS, ABC and NBC - all news departments with deep connections to the democratic party - regurgitate the democratic talking points. It's not perfect - but at least two sides are represented.
Excellant!......Only stations I watch are LINK and FSTV
you see Ambivilent - that's just as bad as watching only Fox. The trick is to watch it all - get all sides of the story- and then make a decision. Every station has an agenda. Watch one and you become that agenda. Watch them all and you start realizing that they all have some good and bad points.
What made Americans stupid is their educational system and what made their educational system so bad is that they embraced Frankfurt School ideas whole sale.
It's the logical outcome of an education system like America's. Fox News is the symptom, not the cause; Fox only survives because there are so many really badly educated people in America; it's not the cause of that bad education.
The finding that Fox news readers are less well informed - if you actually read the report - mostly comes from the fact that there are so many more of them than most other station. (Broader demographics will tend to do that.) Also, if you read the study, you'll find that there is another group less informed and that is people who get their news primarily from John Stewart and the Daily show - and unfortunately there are a lot of those.
Not even suprised by that; I bet the conclusion of teh study says all that and whoever reported it just ignored it.
In every study I have read Conservatives come out as being better informed than liberals.
Of course, being leftist isn't about being informed, it's about being emotional.
No one fixes the news like Fox fixes it.
Gawd - that would be awful. Fox news listeners are the most lumpishly stupid creatures that they make slime molds appear intelligent.
No. Canadians aren't stupid.
The reason that liberals don't like Fox seems to be that fox shines a light on them exposing things that they would rather keep hidden, You can always tell how effective and how close to the truth someone or thing is by how fervently the liberals despise them or it.<br />
It is not that Fox lies that sends the liberals into a tizzy, it is that Fox reports the facts, without a liberal spin.
I think it will try its best to,as will any ruling elite owned media sources.
