U. of Maryland report: Trust Fox News and be forever in the dark
Advertisements [?]
The report is issued by the University of Marylands Program on International Policy Attitudes. Its very recent, dated 02 October 2003.

Skip on down to page 14 (page 12 if you print it) and you will see this little conclusion:

The extent of Americans misperceptions vary significantly depending on their source of news. Those who receive most of their news from Fox News are more likely than average to have misperceptions. Those who receive their news from NPR or PBS are less likely to have misperceptions. (Emphasis mine.)

I think the preferred word should be misrepresentations, not misperceptions.

Heres the link: < /> Report is titled: Misperception, The Media and The Iraq War

We report, you decide. Sure.
