Another study has concluded that people who only watch Fox News are less informed than all other news consumers. […] Other networks also did badly in some sections; MSNBC viewers and Fox News viewers both fared worse in answering international questions than people who watched no news. People who only listened to NPR or watched Sunday morning talk shows or “The Daily Show” did the best in the study. Link
I found this very funny. One reason I think MSNBC and Fox news leave people so uninformed is that they are “personality” shows that give bias opinions from “experts.” I still contend that the conservative side of politics has no funny comedians like Jon Stewart. Reality has a well known liberal bias and there is no way for conservatives to give facts with funny comments because the facts unseat their very position unless they are skewed which means they cant be funny.
I’ve been preaching for years now not to watch 90% of the “news” out there. I watch TDS and TCR and read newspapers and Newsweek. Sometimes I’ll watch Brian Williams clips online.
