A new study by the Pew Research Study shows that viewers of the Daily Show and the Colbert Report have the highest knowledge of national and international affairs, while Fox News viewers rank nearly dead last [...]
The results about Fox News echo findings of previous surveys. In 2003, University of Maryland researchers studied the public’s belief in three false claims — that Iraq possessed WMD, that Iraq was involved in 9/11, and that there was international support for the U.S.-led invasion of Iraq.
The researchers stated, "The extent of Americans’ misperceptions vary significantly depending on their source of news. Those who receive most of their news from Fox News are more likely than average to have misperceptions." Fox News viewers were "three times more likely than the next nearest network to hold all three misperceptions."
Fox News is to willful stupidity as a TV show called "The Girl Who you Stalk and Follow Around at Night Is Just Waiting for You To Break Into Her House so She Can Do You" is to creepy stalkers.
