Asia Times -Faux News

Asia Times -: "WASHINGTON - The more commercial television news you watch, the more wrong you are likely to be about key elements of the Iraq War and its aftermath, according to a major new study released in Washington on Thursday.

And the more you watch the Rupert Murdoch-owned Fox News channel, in particular, the more likely it is that your perceptions about the war are wrong, adds the report by the University of Maryland's Program on International Policy Attitudes (PIPA). "

Hopefully longer analysis of this on the other site. I asked for this kind of research a while back, I can't believe somebody did it for me.

I am not, however, surprised about the results (i.e. Republicans watching Fox "News" were infinitely more likely to think Iraq = Al Queda, we found WMD in Iraq, and the rest of the world thought invading Iraq was a good idea, than did NPR-watching Democrats).
