"Remember the Lord of the Rings?  Remember those crystal balls that Sauroman and Denethor look through?  Those crystal balls are known in the stories as the palintir, and the thing about the palantir is that they don't say anything that's not true.  However they do paint a particular portrait of events, which corrupts the viewer of their visions to the point of view of Sauron.  My point is the Fox News seems to me very much like the palintir, only not so beholden to the truth."

meh, you can stop with the avalanche of non-facts; the mods here have made it clear who gets free reign, and who doesn't. It was stupid of me to even engage with A Priori 'believers' on a kids gaming site, of all places!

Pretty soured toward the whole armorgames thing in general, but certainly won't be posting on forums

You take one valid example, and use it as a representation of the liberal media. What makes you so different then from the people you condemn? Labeling us as ''believers'' of some biased liberal conspiracy is pretty **** well doing what you yourself claim to dislike.

Average fox viewer is less informed than someone who doesn't watch the news at all

"People who
didn’t have any reported exposure to news sou
rces were expected to answer 1.28questions correctly"

"someone who watched only Fox News would be expected to answer just 1.04 domestic questions correctly"

Basically you're better off not watching any news at all rather than watch Fox.

Here's a video where a guy filmed himself in a study for fox, and showed their completely faked and illegitimate study on marijuana.

Here's a video showing how fox skews their data. There was a video showing a ton of these faked graphs, but i can't find it.

I'm just going to take a stab in the dark and guess that you didn't watch/read any of the links given..and instead just skipped 'em to go on a blind rampage about how we are the idiots?

Yes and it doesn't surprise me in the least that a political satire get's you a better ranking than the major news outlets.
