There ARE some things worse than being ignorant

I am a huge supporter of education.  I have always said that ignorance is the equalizer of all unsuccessful and small minded morons out there.  And one good source of general education is the news.  That is, if it's actual news! It appears that Fox News viewers are less informed than people who don't watch any news, according to a new poll from Fairleigh Dickinson University.  The poll surveyed New Jersey residents about the uprisings in Egypt and the Middle East, and where they get their news sources. The study, which controlled for demographic factors like education and partisanship, has shown that being a Faux Noise viewer will actually make you more ignorant of the world around you...  Either that, or you are just gullible enough to swallow the outright lies of that fake news outlet.

Interestingly, speaking of fake news outlets, people who watch The Daily Show actually scored at the top of the survey in factual accuracy!  I am starting to think that perhaps Faux Noise is some sort of massive art project to see just how big a pile of bullshit people will swallow...
