Fox News viewers found to be 'worst informed': Study
Washington, May 25 (ANI): Fox News viewers are less informed than those who watch other programmes, or no TV news at all, a new research has found.
A study conducted by the Fairleigh Dickinson University in Madison, New Jersey, has found that an average American was able to correctly answer 1.8 out of four questions on international news and 1.6 out of five domestic related news.
However, Fox News followers could answer only 1.04 domestic questions correctly, which is worse than those who said they watched no media at all, at 1.22.
These differences may be small, but even small differences are important when we're talking about millions of people," The Telegraph quoted Dan Cassino, a political scientist and poll analyst, as saying.
The study, which surveyed 1,185 people, found that in comparison, those who listened to National Public Radio fared best, answering 1.51 questions correctly, while those watching The Daily Show, which mixes current affairs with humour, scored 1.42. (ANI)
