Study Confirms That Fox Makes You Stupid

People who watch Fox News are so stupid, they have no idea that Fox News can legally lie to them and lies all the time, often by omission of the facts.

According to a new study recently published in American politics, research consuming too much Fox news can in fact, made you stupid. Now the study didn’t put it that way. The study said, it just makes you less informed about, you know, certain things, especially certain things having to do with science, but let’s not dance around it, right? We’re we’re not having to use scientific language. We’re not having to have this published so we can straight up say what it actually is. Fox news makes you stupid. Now, before I get into the details of this particular study, it is important to remember that over the years we have seen study after study, after study, that has confirmed that Fox news viewers are the least informed out of any other media consumers here in the United States.

 

The “Fox-Can-Lie Lawsuit” established that they are not required to be truthful by law. Since Fox has established that they have the legal right not to be truthful, Fox Opinion Hosts tells their conservative viewers that Democrats are “Radical Leftist Socialists” who want to take away your guns & freedom, that Republican policies are good for this country, that Trump’s a rational person and the MSM (Main Stream Media) such as ABC, CBS, NBC, MSNBC, CNN, New York Times, Washington Post etc is “Fake News”. ALL the exact opposite of the TRUTH.

Right-Wing outlets want to KEEP their viewers brainwashed so they never watch legitimate news and learn the truth about the damage Trump and Republicans has been doing to our country while screwing over “the little guy”. Also, the more people who watches, the more money they can demand and bring in for advertising.

Right Wing Media has put PROFITS & PARTISANSHIP above PATRIOTISM and telling the TRUTH

 

Fox News Plan Exposed

 

A memo entitled “A Plan for Putting the GOP on TV News,” buried in the the Nixon library details a plan between Ailes and the White House to bring pro-administration stories to television networks around the country. It reads: “Today television news is watched more often than people read newspapers, than people listen to the radio, than people read or gather any other form of communication. The reason: People are lazy. With television you just sit—watch—listen. The thinking is done for you.”

It’s just one 15-page section in a 318-page cache John Cook, at Gawker, pulled out from the Richard Nixon and George H.W. Bush libraries.

 

Republicans must lie to survive: They have no other choice

The Republican Party has a problem. A big problem. As the party of the wealthy and big business, how in the world can it convince the working class to vote for its candidates? This is no small matter. It is not some little glitch.

Per the above article; “The GOP exists to serve the interests of the wealthy and big business that comprise the richest 1%. No party, however, can ever win an election with only 1% of the vote. So to win elections, the GOP must necessarily reach beyond its own wealthy core and attempt to convince a large segment of working people in the 99% to vote for Republicans.

Normally, a political party wins elections by offering policies that benefit the voters. These policies attract the voters who then cast their votes for the political party.

But for the Republican Party, this is not an option. A candidate could not possibly campaign on the policies favored by the 1%. Just imagine the stump speech. “Vote for me and I will slash your health care! In fact, I’ll do even better — I’ll fight like mad to completely eliminate your health care!”

“Vote for me and I will get rid of your pensions! This would save corporations a bundle and boost profits to the shareholders! Screw the workers!”

“Vote for me and I promise to ship your jobs overseas under globalization! The exact same labor can be hired in Asia for only pennies! Hurray!”

The Republican Party is left with only one option. It cannot possibly be honest about its true intentions and actual policies. The working class would never vote for them. Instead, the only option is to lie”.

Right Wing Media has been extremely effective in propagating and reinforcing Republican’s lies to brainwashed viewers.

Proof of how Republican’s policies are bad for working class people is how California Republican Gubernatorial Candidate Larry Elder ran on a platform of eliminating the minimum wage.

Right-wing media use their platforms to brainwash their viewers with lies, propaganda, conspiracy theories and divisive social issues to make them vote for REPUBLICANS (against their own best interests) and to demonize DEMOCRATS, the very people who fights for Middle Class and Poor Americans.

 

Republicans don’t want to pay Average Joe Americans a fair, living wage. The above video explains why.

Right Wing Media never discusses issues such as this because they serve the interests of the top 1%. If that’s all you watch, you’d never know about this.

You Literally Can’t Believe The Facts Tucker Carlson Tells You. So Say Fox’s Lawyers

Tucker Carlson appears to be made of Teflon. Fox News’ top-rated host has been repeatedly accused of anti-immigrant and racist comments, which have cost his political opinion show many of its major advertisers. Yet Carlson endures in his prime-time slot. Carlson even attacked his own network’s chief news anchor on the air, with no real consequences.

Per the above article; “You can’t expect to literally believe the words that come out of Carlson’s mouth. And that assertion is not coming from Carlson’s critics. It’s being made by a federal judge in the Southern District of New York and by Fox News’s own lawyers. U.S. District Judge Mary Kay Vyskocil’s opinion, leaning heavily on the arguments of Fox’s lawyers: The “‘general tenor’ of the show should then inform a viewer that [Carlson] is not ‘stating actual facts’ about the topics he discusses and is instead engaging in ‘exaggeration’ and ‘non-literal commentary. ”

Two Fox News contributors resign after Tucker Carlson special

Stephen Hayes and Jonah Goldberg announced Sunday night that they have resigned from Fox News, saying that Tucker Carlson’s “Patriot Purge” propaganda film was the last straw.

 

Title from Youtube; “Why Tucker Carlson pretends to hate elites”

Description from Youtube; “Tucker Carlson has branded himself as a populist, condemning the “liberal elite” that he argues makes up the American “ruling class.” It’s a good shtick, and it’s helped him stand out from other Fox News hosts. But while Tucker decries the “elite” on his show, he regularly ignores major stories of Republican economic policies that harm the working class, choosing instead to focus on bogus culture war stories.

That isn’t an accident. Carlson’s show is meant to distract Fox News viewers from Republican economics, channeling their frustration and anger at groups that don’t deserve it. That kind of misdirection produces what Marxist theorists call “false consciousness”: when workers are tricked into accepting their own exploitation”.

 

When spoiled kids whine

Is there anything funnier than listening to Tucker Carlson whine about why the White House “can’t not give us a pass!” in the wake of Neil Munro’s prep-boy heckling of President Obama? You can watch it below (h/t Crooks and Liars). “We’re bigger than the Chicago Tribune!” Carlson sputtered on Fox News Monday.

Per the above article; “Nothing says “spoiled child” like Tucker Carlson. The son of wealthy Republican William Carlson, a former Los Angeles television anchor who became the head of the Corporation for Public Broadcasting and a U.S. ambassador, Carlson used his family connections to sail into journalism. Except for a brief moment when he seemed willing to ruffle the powers that be – his first George W. Bush profile for Talk magazine comes to mind – he has done nothing but afflict the afflicted and comfort the comfortable in his career. Examples of his partisan ethics abound, but my favorite was his shrill defense of Scooter Libby in the Valerie Plame case while never acknowledging that his father headed Libby’s defense fund. Wealthy Republican family values at work”.

 

Here’s a photo of Tucker Carlson’s home. Per an article at velvetropes.com/backstage/tucker-carlson-house; “Tucker Carlson’s house is 7,400 square feet with 5 bedrooms and 6.5 bathrooms. In the fully-enclosed backyard is a 40-foot heated swimming pool, a veranda, a flagstone terrace, a lush lawn, and perfectly manicured mature landscaping”.

According to celebritynetworth.com/richest-politicians/republicans/tucker-carlson-net-worth is worth $30 Million and his salary is $6 Million a year.

When you look at the lavish lifestyle Carlson lives, one can see why he has a vested interest to do / say what-ever it takes to maintain his lavish lifestyle. Also, having a show watched by millions of people carries enormous prestige, to the extent some people might be willing to abandon allegiance to county & decency.

 

Republicans represent & protect the RICH and Corporate America. They have unlimited money to spend to buy the type of America THEY want. Fox is owned by Rupert Murdoch, a Multi-Billionaire worth $22.4 billion as of July 2021, according to wikipedia.org/wiki/Rupert_Murdoch.

As part of the RULING CLASS, he has a vested interest in “Controlling the masses” and making sure as many people as possible watch his channel and vote for Republicans, so they can stay in power and cram what they want down the throats of Average Joe Americans.

The research was funded by the National Institutes of Health and the University of Virginia. In the study of 368 patients, 97 patients who took hydroxychloroquine had a 27.8% death rate. The 158 patients who did not take the drug had an 11.4% death rate”.

Why Are Conservatives More Susceptible to Believing Lies?

Many conservatives have a loose relationship with facts. The right-wing denial of what most people think of as accepted reality starts with political issues: As recently as 2016, 45 percent of Republicans still believed that the Affordable Care Act included “death panels” (it doesn’t).

Per the above article: “Why are conservatives so susceptible to misinformation? The right wing’s disregard for facts and reasoning is not a matter of stupidity or lack of education. College-educated Republicans are actually more likely than less-educated Republicans to have believed that Barack Obama was a Muslim and that “death panels” were part of the ACA. And for political conservatives, but not for liberals, greater knowledge of science and math is associated with a greater likelihood of dismissing what almost all scientists believe about the human causation of global warming.

Part of the problem is widespread suspicion of facts—any facts. Both mistrust of scientists and other “experts” and mistrust of the mass media that reports what scientists and experts believe have increased among conservatives (but not among liberals) since the early ’80s. The mistrust has in part, at least, been deliberately inculcated. The fossil fuel industry publicizes studies to confuse the climate change debate; Big Pharma hides unfavorable information on drug safety and efficacy; and many schools in conservative areas teach students that evolution is “just a theory.” The public is understandably confused about both the findings and methods of science. “Fake news” deliberately created for political or economic gain and Donald Trump’s claims that media sites that disagree with him are “fake news” add to the mistrust.

But, the gullibility of many on the right seems to have deeper roots even than this. That may be because at the most basic level, conservatives and liberals seem to hold different beliefs about what constitutes “truth.” Finding facts and pursuing evidence and trusting science is part of liberal ideology itself. For many conservatives, faith and intuition and trust in revealed truth appear as equally valid sources of truth.

Psychologists have repeatedly reported that self-described conservatives tend to place a higher value than those to their left on deference to tradition and authority. They are more likely to value stability, conformity, and order, and have more difficulty tolerating novelty and ambiguity and uncertainty. They are more sensitive than liberals to information suggesting the possibility of danger than to information suggesting benefits”.
