Fox News Viewers Are Less Informed Than the Uninformed

Those of us who worked on Outfoxed have been screaming for seven years about how watching Fox makes you dumber than dumb.  Here’s another survey to back that up:

A new survey of New Jersey voters comes to a provocative conclusion: Fox News viewers tend to be less informed about current events than those who don’t watch any news at all.

[...]

“The results show us that there is something about watching Fox News that leads people to do worse on these questions than those who don’t watch any news at all,” said Dan Cassino, a political science professor at Fairleigh Dickinson.

So, if you don’t watch any news at all you know more than people who watch Fox.

Think about that.

And think about the fact that Fox has the highest rating of any “news” channel in the United States.
