It's not a generalization. It is factual information supported by statistical data concerning FOX "News" targetted demographic, and a direct
correlation to their ratings, and who they pander their bombastic hokum to.
Everyone who watches Fox news must be too stupid to know better. That is typical liberal thought, unfortunately.
I didn't say that FOX "News" viewers were stupid, the facts did. Google national average IQ's. See what is legally considered "legally impaired" and
what is considered "genius range" IQs. Do your own homework and back up your claims with facts, not just opinion.
Also, do not assume I am a liberal.
My husband and I watch Fox news, as do my parents and to be frank, most people I know. Perhaps Fox is popular because it mirrors American values
better than the competition.
I'm an American who values integrity, honesty, and being truthful. I do not assign high value to those who deliberatly lie, and demonstrate
repeatedly a lack of journalistic integrity.
What competition? FOX "News" has higher ratings than that their two closest comptetitors combined. As for FOX reflecting American values, I don't
think this is the case. FOX presents only selected and filtered information, and purposefully broadcasts false information and lies. FOX "News" also
incorporates wartime psyops tactics that as far as I know should be illegal. It is possible to make people believe things they normally would not
believe. Peoples' intentions, opinions, priorities, perceptions, actions and behaviors can all be manipulated.
Both my husband and I have doctorate degrees. I am a member of Mensa. I am not saying this to brag, but to show that you are incorrect in your
assumption that only those with low IQs could possibly buy into Fox's conservative thought.
Please feel free to quote me where I said only
those with low IQs could possibly buy into Fox's conservative
I do not agree with you politically, but it does NOT make me mentally inferior. Your superior attitude toward anyone who disagrees with you is
something you should try to overcome.
What superior attitude?
By the way, I don't think I'm superior to you...but neither should you continue to come across as feeling superior to everyone else.
Being informed is necessary in order to make any informed decisions.
FOX "News" purposefully and deliberately misinforms people. period.
No, I'm not a proponent of floccinaucinihilipipification, but in FOX "News" case I may be leaning in that direction.
I personally believe FOX "News" has been the single most detrimental driving force for the GOP.
In all the years FOX "News" has been on TV, can anyone tell me one major story they have "broken" before anyone else?
Thanks & have a good week,
