Fox news viewers are more stupid! Proof!
"Psychologists call it pseudo-certainty. I call it behaving like an a*hole." - Al Franken.

Combining those who said views were evenly balanced with those who assumed that the majority favored the Iraq wara more inclusive definition of misperception--the same pattern obtained. Fox viewers had the highest level of misperceiving (69%) and PBS-NPR the lowest (26%). The others also formed a familiar pattern: CBS at 63%, ABC at 58%, NBC at 56%, CNN at 54%, and print media.

Republicans are also more likely to have misperceptions. However, further analysis reveals that support for the President is the critical factor, not Republican identity--as this effect disappeared among Republicans once support for the President was controlled for.

1. Good grief
It's funny to see it quantified in such stark terms, ain't it?

2. Quoting someone here at DU,
While it's not true that all conservatives are stupid, it is true that all stupid people are conservative.
