133. Are the more likely to
"get their sanity back" if they are watching Fox, or if they are not?

I can tell you with certainty in my heart that the political mood, the anger level of our nation would drastically change in less than a month if somehow Fox were to drop off the air. There are some who are so mired in hate that comes within, and nothing much will change those people other than true internal catastrophic change of heart. But I do not believe that that is a majority even within Fox's viewership. I strongly believe that many are scared, unsure, and do not know any better than to take on the hate that is repeated to them day in day out by every commenter and guest on that propaganda outlet. Many probably do not even realize what it does to them. Thats why we hear so much outrage from the tea party at being called racist. They know they are not racist. But the program they have been fed is, and has made them act in racist ways. They were dropped into cold water, then the heat was turned up, but they cannot see that they are boiling yet.
