Haha - does he Tweet?

No, somebody on my Twitter list posted a link to the summary.

I don't know about Rush but I don't. I knew what you meant however. Thanks for having a sense of humor.

I don't trust any news source. Why? Because I read David Southwell and follow him on twitter and his blog

Yep, it's a cult of personality draped in misappropriated "american values"

People who watch no news are more knowledgeable about world events than those who watch Fox News.

Some News Leaves People Knowing Less

If I may hijack this thread into the real world for a brief moment.

Jon Stewart says those who watch Fox News are the "most consistently misinformed media viewers"


Ok, you may recommence with your hypoxic, ideologically driven FNC bashing.

Do you really think it's ideological? Because I bash any source that bills itself as a "news" organization but is blatantly biased and partisan. There is rarely any sense of balance on any of these organizations that I find it nauseating.

More self-identified Democrats watch FNC than even MSNBC. Are they misinformed?

Do you really believe this? Do you really believe they use Fox as their sole source of information?

I have found that those that use Fox as their sole or main source are incredibly uninformed.

Do I believe what? That more Democrats watch Fox News than MSNBC? Yes, I do. Look at the raw numbers.

I would imagine that ANYONE who exclusively uses any one source to get their news would be incredibly uninformed, whether it's Fox News, MSNBC, Huffington Post or Jon Stewart. Hopefully you agree.

I think it's funny that you still think that msnbc is an equivalent to fox.

And yes I would agree with you, especially given those sources.

That couldn't be more wrong. MSNBC is not an equivalent to Fox News.

I'll leave it at that.

Then why is it that every time anyone brings up Fox you automatically bring up msnbc?

Maybe they are just cable news rubber-neckers. I like FOX's round table breakfast gang once in a while when I want to laugh at stupid people for a quick five minutes.

And the reverse is true as well. I bring up a problem with MSNBC, you or someone else hits back with Fox News. I find it odd that the criticisms of FNC brought up in this thread are almost never simultaneously directed at MSNBC, though they easily could and should be. Why is that?
