People Who Quote FOX News Sources Are Getting Laughed Out Of Rooms All Over America Since Obama's Relection.
FOX is now a running joke because of how insulated and out of touch it is. A study came out that said if you watch FOX News that you are actually DEVOLVING. A person who watches No News is more informed than people who watch FOX News.

Lol.banana

I personally wouldn't dare post a fox news link or quote but the apes will.

Fox News viewers less informed than those who don’t watch news at all: study
MEENA HARTENSTEIN
Tuesday, November 22, 2011

If Fox News viewers want to be informed about current events, they might as well turn off the TV.

A poll released by Fairleigh Dickinson University on Monday found that people who get their news from Fox News know significantly less about news both in the U.S. and the world than people who watch no news at all.

In a survey of 612 New Jersey natives, Fox News fans flunked questions about Egypt and Syria when compared with people who don't watch the news. Fox viewers were 18-points less likely to know that Egyptians toppled their government and 6 points less likely to be aware that Syrians have not yet overthrown theirs.

"Because of the controls for partisanship, we know these results are not just driven by Republicans or other groups being more likely to watch Fox News," Dan Cassino, a Fairleigh Dickinson professor who served as an analyst for the poll, said in the report. "Rather, the results show us that there is something about watching Fox News that leads people to do worse on these questions that those who don't watch any news at all."

Those surveyed also struggled with current events closer to home. Just 47% were able to identify the Occupy Wall Street protesters as predominantly Democratic, while 11% thought they were Republican. Here it was MSNBC viewers who got it wrong the most - watching the left-leaning network was linked to a 10-point increase in the likelihood of misidentifying the demonstrators.

MSNBC viewers did have a 10-point higher chance, however, of correctly identifying Mitt Romney as a frontrunner in the race for a 2012 GOP nominee. Fox News viewers didn't benefit -- or suffer -- in this category, a fact Cassino called "very surprising" given the amount of attention the network has paid to the candidates.

The most informative outlets were found to be the Sunday morning news shows as well as outlets like the New York Times, USA today and NPR.

Another powerful source of news was the "The Daily Show with Jon Stewart."

Stewart's viewers had a 12-point higher likelihood of correctly identifying the Wall Street protesters, for example.

"Jon Stewart has not spent a lot of time on some of these issues," Cassino said. "But the results show that when he does talk about something, his viewers pick up a lot more information than they would from other news sources."

I used to be a fox news lover. Have you seen i lately?

The FiVe show spent 15 minutes laughing about twinkies on Friday then jumped to Kim kArdashian. They had Bob Beckel eating twinkies to music.

Waste of time. How do you take a news channel seriously when they have that crap on in the morning and the Fox and Friends BS in the morning. Fox jumped the shark over two years ago and became irrelevant. The only place for true news and investigative journalism is the internet and you have to be careful what you read there.

But yes, fox has lost all credibility and no study or link is needed to prove it. Just watch it. They are as bad with the rights agenda as the other stations are with the lefts agenda. Dog and pony show. Bread and circuses.

It's amazing how Fox News catches so much heat when it is no more scripted/biased than MSNBC, CNN, etc. In fact, I'd say Fox News is the best of the three because it doesn't masquerade as an unbiased news network like the other two.

FOX news propaganda, go for it.

I like to watch them to see how often in 5 minutes they will use a particular word, such as entitlement. They'll use it 3 or 4 times in one sentence if they can.

Then the idiot parrots who watch that garbage start talking like Bill O'Reilly in their daily lives and using all the often repeated words.

What garbage and what idiots.

Re: People Who Quote FOX News Sources Are Getting Laughed Out Of Rooms All Over America Since Obama's Relection.
I have been watching CNN for the last 20 years but about 5 years ago things changed and they became a channel dedicated to constantly and blatantly pushing the democratic agenda. So I searched for another channel to get my news from that didn't spin everything and found out that all news channels were constantly pushing democratic politics. I also have found that for the last 5 years 99% of what's on TV is now pushing a socialist leading to a communist way of life for America. I then came across Fox news which I did't even know existed before which I found the only channel that wasn't spinning an agenda 24/7. I prefer to live my life in a liberal way but when it comes to money and business I'm much more conservative. I always considered myself a liberal but in recent years the liberals in North America have jumped the shark, they have become completely insane.

where Meggan turns to Karl Rove (who has been blabbing away numbers) and says "Is this just Math you do as a Republican to make yourself feel better or is this real"

GeezusChrist, I fell off my chair I was laughing SOOOOO HARD!!!

also recorded it and set as my current ringtone!!!!
