From a poll conducted by WorldPublicOpinion.org, based at the University of Maryland, and Knowledge Networks, we see the following statistics:
"Those who watched Fox News almost daily were significantly more likely than those who never watched it to believe that...
(snip long list of falsehoods)
The effect was also not simply a function of partisan bias, as people who voted Democratic and watched Fox News were also more likely to have such misinformation than those who did not watch it--though by a lesser margin than those who voted Republican."

Interesting that the best that Fox News could do in the face of these revelations was to simply insult university-based research. Hmmm... Fox News research is good, but academic research, subject to peer review and verification is not? Oh well...
I guess this belongs in the "No kidding, Sherlock!" file. Before commenting, be sure to read the questions that were asked.
