Fox News Viewers Know Less Than People Who Don't Watch Any News: Study

The poll surveyed New Jersey residents about the uprisings in Egypt and the Middle East, and where they get their news sources. The study, which controlled for demographic factors like education and partisanship, found that "people who watch Fox News are 18-points less likely to know that Egyptians overthrew their government" and "6-points less likely to know that Syrians have not yet overthrown their government" compared to those who watch no news.

This isn't the first study that has found that Fox News viewers more misinformed in comparison to others. Last year, a study from the University of Maryland found that Fox News viewers were more likely to believe false information about politics.

TVNL Comment: That means FOX News is the most successful establishment news outlet. The establishment news industry is there to create and maintain a false reality and nobody does it better than FOX; although the others are all pretty good at it.
