A Preview of Fox News North Proving That it Will Make Canadians Stupid

As Canada is poised to get it's own Fox News, courtesy of Stephen Harper and Canadian tax dollars, there's a story from the U.S. that we should pay attention to.

A study from the University of Maryland has revealed that Extended exposure to Fox News makes voters stupid.

Fox News is simply an extension of the Republican party and they flog ridiculous conspiracy theories, designed to convince the American people of things that are absolutely false.
The troublesome record of spin by conservative television station Fox News has long been a cause for concern to many Americans, who frequently allege that the nation's most viewed "news" network has the effect of dumbing down voters. Turns out, they were right.

A University of Maryland study (PDF) published earlier this month found that people in the survey who had the most exposure to Fox News were more likely to believe falsehoods and rumors about national and world affairs when compared to those who paid attention to other news outlets.
I can hardly wait.


  1. Fox News = Fox Noise

    Sun TV News host Ezra Levant provides a clear example of what Canadians can expect from Teneycke's tabloid news organization, post ideological purge: "Fair and Balanced." "We Report, You Decide." "Hard News, Straight Talk."

    They distort, you comply.


  2. Anyone who wants to understand more fully the affects that exposure to Sun/Fox news will have on us should spend a few moments reading Ezra's Wikipedia profile. I have never seen so much bile listed to describe one individual in my life and if he is an an advocte for freedom of speech, then I'm the Queen of England.
