Faux News

Why am I not surprised? The ignorance exhibited by large swaths of the U.S. population is stunning, sad, and dangerous. (thx LH)

From HuffPo...
Fox News viewers are less informed than people who don't watch any news, according to a new poll from Fairleigh Dickinson University
The poll surveyed New Jersey residents about the uprisings in Egypt and the Middle East, and where they get their news sources. The study, which controlled for demographic factors like education and partisanship, found that "people who watch Fox News are 18-points less likely to know that Egyptians overthrew their government" and "6-points less likely to know that Syrians have not yet overthrown their government" compared to those who watch no news.
