    Yea... Except they kinda are the problem..
    "Those who watched Fox News almost daily were significantly more likely than those who never watched it to believe that most economists estimate the stimulus caused job losses (12 points more likely), most economists have estimated the health care law will worsen the deficit (31 points), the economy is getting worse (26 points), most scientists do not agree that climate change is occurring (30 points), the stimulus legislation did not include any tax cuts (14 points), their own income taxes have gone up (14 points), the auto bailout only occurred under Obama (13 points), when TARP came up for a vote most Republicans opposed it (12 points) and that it is not clear that Obama was born in the United States (31 points)."

    Remember that study from the University of Maryland and WorldPublicOpinion.org saying Fox News viewers are the most “misinformed” audience? It seems that was misinformation.

    Competitive Enterprise Institute Communications Director, and licensed lawyer, Lee Doren has just released a short video expose showing that the study is severely flawed.

    “After looking at the supposed ‘myths’ that Fox News watchers believe, I quickly realized that something was wrong with the study,” Doren writes in the video’s YouTube introduction. “As a result, I read the study very carefully and realized that the whole study was bogus.”

    He says the study does “not have data to support its conclusions,” and goes as far as to say it “may simply demonstrate that Fox News viewers are more informed than the researchers.”

    So we have a comment by someone who actually believes the myths and falsehoods Fox spews. Is it any surprise that an idiot like that thinks he is informed?

    When it comes to studies like this, you can pretty much get whatever result you want depending on how you word the questions.

    As far as Cavuto's comment, no Fox news is not "the" problem. However, infotainment masquerading as news (on both sides of the debate) is "A" problem. A big one. And Fox News is guilty of that in spades.

    Every news network is jealous of Fox news because of their success......That is a fact but that is not what this thread is about. When Liberals get caught with their hands in the cookie jar they try and deflect the subject.......Won't work here........The man is right on.

    Competitive Enterprise Institute Communications Director, and licensed lawyer, Lee Doren clearly debunks the University of Maryland study if you would even bother to watch the vid but why would I expect a liberal to take the time to be proven wrong

    Does he believe the myths to be truths? If so he's an idiot.
