The Danger of GOP TV's Fox So-Called 'News'

by Thom Hartmann posted Nov 22 2011 5:07PM
According to a new study – you’re better off watching no news than GOP TV's Fox so-called News.  Farleigh Dickinson University surveyed New Jersey residents about the uprisings in the Middle East – and it turns out people who get their news from Fox are 18-points less likely to know that Egyptians overthrew their government compared to people who watch absolutely no news at all.  

Similar results were seen when Fox viewers were asked questions about the Syrian uprising too. I guess all the chatter about the Muslim Brotherhood over at GOP TV distracted viewers from the actual news taking place. 

So isn’t it about time to strip the word “news” from Fox – and just call the network what it really is – what Roger Ailes envisioned when he first proposed it to Richard Nixon in the 1970’s – GOP TV?

Listen to me Monday through Friday 3 PM to 6 PM on WWRL AM 1600.
