    At least it was an unintentional mistake, rather than fake news, wittholding news, using non-existent sources and intentionally distorting the story.

    I mean like ABC, CNN, BBC and the New York Times usually do. Lib journalists are generally proud of the way they can distort the news.

    Please provide an example that wasn't repeated by other stations and is unique to one of them. My biggest bit with fox was O'reillys Malmedy massacre bit where he mixed up the slaughter of our troops with us somehow killing axis.

    You faith in Faux News explains so much.

    Americans who receive most of their news from Fox are more likely to hold misperceptions about the Iraq War. Americans who receive their news from NPR or PBS are less likely to do so.

    The report surveyed three common misperceptions about the Iraq War: 1) belief in links between Iraq and al-Qaeda; 2) belief that WMD were found in Iraq; and, 3) belief that world public opinion approved of the US war with Iraq.

    Those who relied on Fox News were "were most likely to hold misperceptions—and were more than twice as likely than the next nearest network to hold all three misperceptions. In the audience for NPR/PBS, however, there was an overwhelming majority who did not have any of the three misperceptions, and hardly any had all three."

    See If You Watch Fox, You're Probably Incapable of Understanding This, starting at Adobe page 14 (page 12 of Report).

    The survey proves that Fox viewers are badly informed. It doesn't explain whether they watch Fox because they are stupid, or whether they became stupid from watching Fox.
