Study proves that people who watch Fox know less about news than those who don’t watch news at all

via Poll Finds Fox News Is Worse Than No News at All – News – GOOD

The study controlled for partisanship, which suggests that something specific to Fox News programs—not party affiliation—makes people more ignorant to certain questions. In other words, when attempting to become a well-informed adult, in some cases it’s probably better to just ignore news altogether than spend any time watching Fox News.

For the past decade and a half I have been making all my content available for free (and never behind a paywall) as an ongoing practice of ephemeral publishing. This site is no exception. If you wish to help offset my labor costs, you can donate on Paypal or you can subscribe to Patreon where I will not be putting my posts behind a lock but you'd be helping me continue making this work available for everyone. Thank you.  Follow me on Twitter for new post updates.
