    Fox News Viewers have an Average IQ of 80

    Sounds like an onion article but it's apparently true
    Study shows that the Americans who watch Fox News have an average IQ of 80, whereas the national average is 100. Researchers were not "shocked" by findings.

    Daily Show viewers are also more informed than MSNBC and Fox Viewers

    I hate all major news networks. But to act as if the libtard channels are any smarter than the bible thumpers at fox is silly.

    "Less intelligent animals rely on instinct when confronted by something which they do not understand. This is an ancient survival reaction all animals, including humans, exhibit. It's a very simple phenomenon, really; think about a dog being afraid of a vacuum cleaner. He doesn't know what a vacuum is or if it may harm him, so he becomes agitated and barks at it. Less intelligent humans do the same thing. Concepts that are too complex for them to understand, may frighten or anger them."
    Oh my gooood, lol.

    My second link shows that MSNBC viewers are also uninformed, just not as much as FOX viewers

    Might be funny, but a low logical IQ (which most tests are based on, like the mensa tests etc.) doesn't show how intelligent you really are, as there are many forms of intelligence.

    With that said, for anyone to follow Fox News they'd have to be really special somewhere in their head.

    False equivalencies are all that Fox has left to justify their fanaticism.

    Wow, the limits people go to to bash a television station. Did they steal your bike or something? Where does all this rage come from when you dont even watch the channel?

    Time to let it go guys, fox has 10x the ratings of other news channels, stop hating on them.

    There is no way. I mean 80 IQ is incredibly low (and rare), no way there are millions of them all watching the same thing.

    To be fair I made that post before you posted the MSNBC link. I can definitely see the DS viewers being more informed.

    To me people who act is if they are smarter than someone who happens to watch different news channel is like a retard on the short bus who pisses himself making fun of a retard who shits himself for being more retarded. This type of divisiveness is tearing apart the country and people are content to just go along with it.

    Both republicans and democrats all full of shit on their own, but if they stopped acting like babies and worked together they might actually get some work done.

    So they are saying that their average viewer is just above the threshold of being classed as mentally retarded? Come on, that is ridiculous and cannot realistically be true, surely.

    while msnbc news is without question leans heavily liberal, they do have something that fox media often lacks - facts

    case in point look at how fox media reported all the election polls not going their way and their reasons for a Romney landslide.

    10 times? Not at all. Its also interesting that, last I checked, their ratings have been going down lately, while others have been increasing.

    Okay, that's just low...but at the same time kinda funny.

    So you're saying MSNBC never lies or fudges facts to get their point across?
