It's "deluded." You must watch fox news:
BASED ON THE UNIVERSITY OF MARYLAND STUDY IN DECEMBER
The following is a list of instances in which Fox News viewers were more likely to be misinformed on a given issue:
most economists estimate the stimulus caused job losses (12 points more likely)
most economists have estimated the health care law will worsen the deficit (31 points)
the economy is getting worse (26 points)
most scientists do not agree that climate change is occurring (30 points)
the stimulus legislation did not include any tax cuts (14 points)
their own income taxes have gone up (14 points)
the auto bailout only occurred under Obama (13 points)
when TARP came up for a vote most Republicans opposed it (12 points)
and that it is not clear that Obama was born in the United States (31 points)
Even more revealing, people who watched Fox News multiple times a day or everyday were found to be more misinformed than those who just watched Fox News occasionally. Among those who watched Fox News almost every day:
- 72% believe the economy is getting worse.
- 49% believe their taxes have gone up under President Obama.
- 63% believe the stimulus did not create any tax cuts.
- 47% believe that TARP was passed into law and signed by President Obama.
Some critics of the study might argue that the researchers were bias in determining what responses were "true" or "false." In their defense, the researchers stated they used objective sources, such as The Wall Street Journal survey of economists, in order to determine the veracity of various claims. The Wall Street Journal is actually considered a more conservative newspaper
