God Bless Fox News

I once saw a poll showing the average political savvy of Americans. One statistic drew my attention. Those that habitually watch Fox News scored less than 1 out of 5 correct in 5 questions about current events. Contrast that to those who report that they watch no TV news, listen to no radio news, and do not read newspapers. Their score in the same questionnaire? Just shy of two out of five correct responses.

This means that Fox News actually generates negative knowledge. People who know next to nothing are twice as informed as those who watch Fox News.

Fox News. You don't know whether to kiss them or slap them.
