A recent study from the University of Maryland and WordPublicOpinion.org supposedly shows that Fox News viewers were more likely to believe false information about American politics.

After looking at the supposed 'myths' that Fox News watchers believe, I quickly realized that something was wrong with the study. As a result, I read the study very carefully and realized that the whole study was bogus.

Overall, the study about misinformation and the 2010 election did not have data to support its conclusions. In fact, the study may simply demonstrate that Fox News viewers are more informed than the researchers. It was clear that the researchers were unaware of most of the data provided to the public.

When conducting this research I looked at a variety of sources. Most of the sources can clearly be seen in the video itself. Below is my attempt to list all the sources in no particular order that I reviewed. Some sources were not used at all.
