No News Is Good News?

According to a recent study by Farleigh Dickinson University, people who watch Fox News know less than people who watch no news at all.

So the Fox crew, and by extension their soul mates Rush Limbaugh and Glenn Beck and all the rest of the right-wing noise machine, are anti-intelligence devices. They are the opposite of learning, the negation of knowledge. Un-learning anyone?

If you watch Fox News, and believe what they tell you, you are in a deep hole and you are digging constantly to make it deeper.

You are demonstrably better off not knowing anything than knowing something from Fox News.

This explains so much about the state of our world! It is the Rosetta Stone for understanding contemporary America.
