Not new, but interesting data to chew on.
I'd really have to see what they used to measure knowledge, amongst other things, before I'd care much what the study says. Too many statistical studies are exercises in confirmation bias.
Partisans flock to television.
Why am I not surprised?
Nice to know I have only the top 5 for education and income on my IPad Newstand
Interesting that Limbaugh's audience has a (slightly) higher under-30 and under-50 age distribution than Matthews' or Maddow's. I wouldn't have expected that.
I don't know that there's a lot of surprises in that. Conservatives certainly flock to Fox and Rush, don't they?
Bwahahaha. That's hysterical.
Fox News found to be a major driving force behind global warming denial
"The results suggest that conservative media consumption (specifically Fox News and Rush Limbaugh) decreases viewer trust in scientists, which in turn decreases belief that global warming is happening. In contrast, consumption of non-conservative media (specifically ABC, CBS, NBC, MSNBC, CNN, NPR, The New York Times, and The Washington Post) increases consumer trust in scientists, and in turn belief that global warming is happening.
The study also examined previous research on this issue and concluded that the conservative media creates distrust in scientists through five main methods:
1) Presenting contrarian scientists as "objective" experts while presenting mainstream scientists as self-interested or biased.
2) Denigrating scientific institutions and peer-reviewed journals.
3) Equating peer-reviewed research with a politically liberal opinion.
4) Accusing climate scientists of manipulating data to fund research projects.
5) Characterizing climate science as a religion."
Where have we seen this before?
typical liberal rags good fox news bad drivel from 108
How is it drivel from 108 since he quoted Pew? Don't you think it would be better to counter those findings if you have an issue with them?
hall- when faced with the arrogance of a lib as to how much more intelligent they think they are I find it worthless to try and counter-nothing will ever change the pure self loving concept they posses
My grandkids watch PBS during the day and leave it there when I get home from work. The PBS News Hours (NPR) comes on and I've tried to listen to it, but it is so blatantly bias, I have to turn the channel. What crap.
