From World Public Opinion:
There were however a number of cases where greater exposure to a news source increased misinformation on a specific issue. Those who watched Fox News almost daily were significantly more likely than those who never watched it to believe that:
â€“ Most economists estimate the stimulus caused job losses (12 points more likely) (91 percent of those who watch Fox News â€œalmost every dayâ€)
â€“ Most economists have estimated the health care law will worsen the deficit (31 points) (72 percent)
â€“ The economy is getting worse (26 points) (72 percent)
â€“ Most scientists do not agree that climate change is occurring (30 points) (60 percent)
â€“ The stimulus legislation did not include any tax cuts (14 points) (63 percent)
â€“ Their own income taxes have gone up (14 points) (49 percent)
â€“ The auto bailout only occurred under Obama (13 points) (56 percent)
â€“ When TARP came up for a vote most Republicans opposed it (12 points) (38 percent)
â€“ And that it is not clear that Obama was born in the United States (31 points)(63 percent)
There you have it – Fox twisting reality for their most loyal viewers.
