Poll Shows Fox News Watchers Second-to-Least Informed

"Pew judged the levels of knowledgeability (correct answers) among those surveyed and found that those who scored the highest were regular watchers of Comedy Central's The Daily Show and Colbert Report. They tied with regular readers of major newspapers in the top spot -- with 54% of them getting 2 out of 3 questions correct. Watchers of the Lehrer News Hour on PBS followed just behind.

Virtually bringing up the rear were regular watchers of Fox News. Only 1 in 3 could answer 2 out of 3 questions correctly. Fox topped only network morning show viewers."

Interesting.

However, when you consider moderate knowledge, O'Reilly Factor viewers are smarter than Those of Colbert and Stewart. Also, funny how Fox's #1 show is ranked 4th, while the network is almost dead to last. There must be some stupid people who watch Fox, but don't watch O'Reilly.
