    Study about Fox News Watchers

    Not, I don't believe that for one minute. This is just another example of liberals beating their chest and shouting, we liberals are smarter than everyone else. Your post is also a perfect example of why we can't even meet you guys halfway..............no respect. That is your biggest weakness. You are definitely underestimating conservatives but that's okay. We can, and will, take advantage of that. Your obsession with Fox News is laughable. especially when compared with the rest of the mainstream media. How do you explain the popularity of Fox and the fact that they are the most watched news in America? It is about time you leftwingers wake up and realize you are not the brightest bulb in the pack.

    • Dick – popularity and accuracy are not the same thing. The study doesn’t lie. You may not like the findings, but that doesn’t change the findings. Sure, Fox is popular, but it is also un-informative, whether you like it or not. Just because people watch it doesn’t make them ‘right’ nor smart and obviously least informed.

      And finally, just watching a little here and there on Fox to see what they report – then laugh at all the info they leave off or just plain distort, does make me a brighter bulb and more informed than someone who gets all there news from this sub-par news service.

      When will you wake up and see this service is not a good choice? Remember, you may not like the facts, but the facts are they are worse than someone not even watching Fox – your choice.

      • I agree, notthat. I have cited that study here and it is well designed and done and it is not the only one soundly coming to that conclusion.

        dickw, let me take a shot at your toughest query:

        Q. "How do you explain the popularity of Fox and the fact that they are the most watched news in America?"

        A. Could a major factor be that most of them can't read?

        Sentiment: Strong Buy

      • Dick - a question of opinion vs. fact. You provided opinions (I don't believe this) and I provided facts. Science wins out everytime over opinon. Sorry Dick. Remember, most watched does not equate to accuracy. Sorry for you.....

      • Not, if voter qualification tests were required before voter registration people on your side would have a hard time keeping up. You shoud be smart enough to inow studies and polls can be twisted any way a pollster wants. Lets face it bud, you are still beating your chest but this side isn't buying il. You say there is a difference between popularity and accuracy. I say there is a difference between book learning and common sense. That's why you guys are so easily misled and influenced which brings us to Fox and the mainstream media. You really believe you are getting accuracy and facts from the latter? If you do I feel sorry for you. Also, you all voted fo hope and change in '08 but nobody knew what the change was. Be honest now. Another example is Obamacare where Nancy Pelosi told you it had to be passed before you could find out what was in it. What!!! Your side is referred to as "drones" for many reasons. I call it mass gullibility. So take care not and I hope the truth will set you free.

        Sentiment: Hold

      • National Enquirer and Star are wildly popular too! lol

    • lol you guys don't even believe in science! Well when you look at the number of blowhards in either party or on this board you guys are the going away winner!!!!! Just look at the posts and you are saying your respectful. What a joke. I am an independent so I can definitely see the hypocrisy in your words.

      Sentiment: Strong Buy

    • Well said Dickw.
