Fox News viewers are less informed than people who don't watch any news, according to a new poll from Fairleigh Dickinson University.
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 is pretty much fact. Evolution is based on your environment, and if your perception of that environment is flawed your not going to evolve into a viable lifeform.

Without looking at the stats, I can tell you why: Fox news isn't news as much as it's opinion.

I normally watch Bloomberg. I tried watching Fox Business news and had to go back to Bloomberg after just a couple of minutes. Everything they talked about, they added their unique political twist to the story. Personally, I prefer unbiased reporting, I like to form my own opinion on a particular subject.
