Merry Christmas! There’s a new poll in town, and it says that Fox News viewers are the “most misinformed of any news consumers.” The study, done by the University of Maryland, compared the deluded state attained through consumption of various media entities, including network TV, NPR, Fox, and CNN, among others. Fox viewers, apparently, believed the darndest things! Including that Obama’s U.S. birth is “unclear,” that scientists don’t believe in climate change, and that the economy is getting worse.
