I didn't know this was a fake study, I thought it was just common knowledge.

Of course the study was fake, but you'll never hear about in any of those liberal media sites like the Huffington Post.

Low IQ & Conservative Beliefs Linked to Prejudice

There have been hundreds of real studies and the results are the same.

Republicans are morons.

It's reverse reverse psychology.

Because this study is a hoax, you might be inclined to believe that Fox News viewers have the same intelligence as other people-- but you have no data to support or falsify that claim.

"Intelligence Institute"?
Sounds legit.

make me some tea: Cewley: may be made up, but totally believable.

Not really. I know plenty of very bright people who watch FoxNews religiously. That mindset has nothing to do with intelligence, and everything to do with brainwashing.

Absolutely. Someone could be very intelligent and yet Fox tells a narrative of a worldview that they want to believe. It could happen to anyone.

Cewley: may be made up, but totally believable.

And the author of this charade knows that:

"Facts are obsolete," said P. Nichols, the contact given for the press release who claimed Nichols was his last name but refused to confirm his entire name, the name of the Republican PAC he says backed the "study" or any of the people behind the actual report he insisted did truly exist. And no, he wouldn't send us a copy of it.

It's now how big your intelligence is, it's how you use it. And in the case of Fox News watchers, it doesn't look like they're using it at all.
