Study Confirms That Fox News Makes You Stupid
A new survey of American voters shows that Fox News viewers are significantly more misinformed than consumers of news from other sources.
"December 15, 2010 Yet another study has been released proving that watching Fox News is detrimental to your intelligence. World Public Opinion, a project managed by the Program on International Policy Attitudes at the University of Maryland, conducted a survey of American voters that shows that Fox News viewers are significantly more misinformed than consumers of news from other sources. What's more, the study shows that greater exposure to Fox News increases misinformation."
Having been involved in market and government research I always look at any supposed study with a cautious eye. The starting hypothesis, sampling methodology and bias of questioning all play key factors in the validity of any study and in this case I feel it is very likely skewed because of the organizations which sponsored it.. not the least of which is the TIDES FOUNDATION. (the organization supported by George Soros whom Glenn Beck has called to the attention of the general public)
Soros has made it clear that he does not like FOX NEWS nor GLENN BECK so it is highly suspect for a study such as this to come out at this time.
Let me make it clear that although in this video I am defending Beck and Fox I do not feel that ANY MEDIA is free of "Spin".
My goal is TRUTH and HONESTY and TRANSPARENCY as many liberals claim they too value.. yet here I clearly show how MEDIA MATTERS, MSNBC & DEMOCRACY NOW all SPUN the story concerning alleged I-580 Gunman BYRON WILLIAMS.
Some of my comments throughout the video are poiniant and others are perhaps tongue-in-cheek but overall i hope that this video clearly shows that ALL MEDIA SHOULD BE QUESTIONED and by DIGGING FOR FACTS we CAN discover the TRUTH.
You may all make your own decision regarding the study but I will warn you as one who was once involved in a major Government Research Project that they are actually designed to illicit many of the responses that the govt. WANTS TO HEAR rather than truth. It is common in most supposedly unbias study. Even agencies comply with the lies because if you dont give the CLIENT what they want to hear..they find a new agency,
