    A) Anyone who thinks the Huffington Post would have an unbiased article regarding Fox News is dumber that most TV viewers in general.

    B) The article title should read "Unscientific poll conducted by a university no one has ever heard of and published by a biased source found that New Jersey residents who watch Fox News and are likely to have the time to respond to polls are less informed about a single issue that has nothing to do with their current well-being or the future outlook of their and their children's futures"

    A little short for a title but we can work on that.

    This study is spot on. Not many people know this, but before getting into watching FoxNews, Beerbelly for instance was a Quantum Physics professor at Colombia University.

    Stop turning your audience into incoherent babbling drunkards, FoxNews. :)

    I see I actually spelled it with an o. That shouldn't result in any helpful corrections from anyone, I'm sure.

    I don't watch Fox or really any other news on TV at all, so perhaps I'm not the best to comment on this. However, I do regularly read the fox news website among others and they had just as much coverage of Egypt on there as anyone else did. So, I find it very hard to believe that people who watch fox were unaware of what is/was going on over there. This just seems like typical liberal drivel. It was probably a very poorly worded question and/or a TERRIBLE study sample.

    I wonder if the question was "What country did the great Obama rip from the jaws of tyranny and restore to everlasting peace and harmony last spring?".

    I think this was a telephone survey, so the real results should be "People that answer their phones to telephone surveyors are less informed than people who have better things to do".

    Wasn't there a story exactly like this several months ago? I just find it pathetic that people actually believe this crap.

    That's ridiculous. When Seal Team Six went into Egypt and killed Gaddafi, it was all over the news. I can't believe people wouldn't remember that.

    This is why I get my news from TMZ and The Onion. When I want breaking news, I come here to the "Current Events" thread.

    first let me admit that i dont read posts all the way through then let me go to amazon and pull up the first 1 star review....ahh here we are....now let me use the statements of one ap reporter and the highly political statements coming from the government to disqualify an entire book.a book that can be collaborated by: Peacekeepers at War: Beirut 1983— - The Marine Commander Tells His Story by Col. Timothy J. Geraghty in regards beirut,Inside Delta Force: The Story of America's Elite Counterterrorist Unit by Eric Haney in regards Operation Eagle Claw,Lawrence Wright’s magnum opus, The Looming Tower,The Bin Ladens by Steve Coll, Holy War, Inc. by Peter Bergen, Mastermind: The Many Faces of the 9/11 Architect, Khalid Shaikh Mohammed by Richard Miniter, Osama: The Making of a Terrorist by Jonathan Randal, Bin Laden: The Man Who Declared
    War on America by Yossef Bodansky, and Inside Al Qaeda Global Network of Terror by Rohan Gunaratna,the wikileaks documents in regards to wmd in iraq...make a poor attempt to be snide to cover my blatant anti intellectual attitude and my general ignorance on the matter and wala...

    Yeah, that study wasn't run using completely subjective criteria. The fact that the author of this article views that study as legitimate and insightful shows what a retarded asshole said author is.

    Two comments.

    I love how fairleigh dickinson did a poll of just NJ residents. Shouldnt Huffpo have stated - NJ fox news viewers in the headline.

    And I wonder if a college has doen a same poll on Huffpo. How well do their readers score?

    Oh and I love this one. Fairleigh dickinson's nickname when I was in high school was fairleigh ridiculous. And HuffPo uses them to regurgitate an old story. Nope. No agenda by them. lol

    Huffpo's readers answered "Fox bad" to every question.

    This "study" fails because people from Jersey are pretty much all retards.
