You're posting this on a forum of far left wingers who have no problems with lying, biased media as long as it's working for them. They won't care about this, nor anything else you can produce to show our MSM has become nothing more than the propaganda arm of the Democrat party.
They will however rage over Fox. In their minds, the only bias and spin that can be allowed is THEIR lies and spin.
I don't understand how anyone can take a group of people and assign attributes to them en mass with a straight face..
It's like saying something as silly as "all fat people love bacon" ... I was once fat ( 300lbs, now 180 ), I hated bacon... I tend to lend liberal and I am a huge fan of truth.. so I take offense at that kind of rhetoric.
These days I'm more centrist in my beliefs.. and actually would have voted republican until my choice dropped out.
Ps. There are quite a few more conservatives here than you think...edit on 9/21/2012 by miniatus because: (no reason given)

I wish the media would just give the news. If America falls apart i would not want to be a journalist.
I want to know why the media is so in the tank for Obama, there is a real conspiracy here, IMHO.

Notice the tumble weeds? That's ATS not caring if media is biased, lying or in the tank for a political party. As long as it's THEIR political party.

The Media's job is not to INFORM you. It's job is to get people to watch their broadcasts, so that their ratings go up. Then they can charge more for their advertising and make a PROFIT for the CORPORATIONS that OWN them.
IF what you said was true, they would all just mimic Fox News. Instead what we see is ideology and partisanship trumping ratings.
In all odds, the study is only gaining national notoriety because it fits the anti-Fox narrative of most of the media. But does it really? MSNBC received similarly low scores, and their numbers were not oversampled. In fact, if this graph showing knowledge of domestic affairs is to be believed, the people who ended up the most misinformed were conservatives who made the mistake of watching MSNBC. The only people who ended up misinformed after watching Fox, on the other hand, were liberals:

My liberal in laws have disowned me because they kept telling me if I didn't agree with them not to speak and when I would ask them for facts or proof, they would keep referencing the DNC and MSNBC. These are so called "smart" people with higher degrees.
So because I wouldn't shut up they excommunicated me from the family. No tears I can't stand them anyway!
