Academic Study: Fox News Lies. Fox News: Well, Your Mom is Ugly!


The self-styled best source of television news in the United States has really outdone itself this time. Confronted by a study that shows viewers of its programs are misinformed about almost every major policy issue facing the United States, how did its senior vice president of news editorial respond?

The latest Princeton Review ranked the University of Maryland among the top schools for having ‘Students Who Study The Least’ and being the ‘Best Party School’ – given these fine academic distinctions, we’ll regard the study with the same level of veracity it was ‘researched’ with.”

Of course, the claims about the University of Maryland (aside from falling victim to the fallacy of composition) were false.
