dookdookdook: Let me de-bullshiat that ("unskew" it, if you will) for everyone:Respondents could only choose one item. There are two conservative news source listed (Fox + WSJ), and 5-10 liberal (read: non-bullshiat) news sources. 21% chose derp, and 31% chose the Liberal Driveby Mainstream MSM Media.If we add Obama, administration officials, and congressional democrats to the liberal column, and FW: FW: FW: emails ('Friends and Family') and congressional republicans to the conservative half, we get 42% conservative and 46% liberal.

Noam Chimpsky: Fox is a left-of-center network. It shows how far to the left the other media outlets have drifted that Fox is seen by some as being right-of-center.
mgshamster: A read of "The Authoritarians" will explain why this happens.Also, Fox News misrepresents and misinforms more than any other TV news networks. Like many great con men, these lies are tenacious and not only get people to believe them, but also get people to mistrust the reliable sources.Conservative media, alternative medicine, creationists, anti AGW... they all use the same con artist tactics - and they all work on certain segments of the population.
fusillade762: These are probably the same people who said Obama botched the Hurricane Katrina response and ACORN stole the 2012 election.
