Beware `Fake News Channel’

Whatever one’s party or special interest, we all deserve to hear truth, “just the facts,” from the media outlets that serve us.So it is particularly concerning that a year-long study by Knowledge Networks and analyzed by the University of Maryland’s Program on International Policy Attitudes shows that those who get their news from the Fox News Channel are getting untruths. Eighty percent of Fox News viewers believe at least one of the following; 45 percent more than one:-Most Fox News viewers believe U.S. troops have found “clear evidence in Iraq that Saddam Hussein was working closely with the al-Qaida terrorist organization.” President Bush himself admits they have not.-More Fox News viewers than viewers of any other network believe the U.S. has found weapons of mass destruction in Iraq since the end of the war. The American weapons search team reports it hasn’t found any.-More Fox News viewers than viewers of any other network believe world opinion was in support of the war. International polling found very little support for the war without United Nations approval.Some newspapers have carried this story. Funny that it has not been reported by the Fox News Channel.Chelsea Congdon BrundigeSnowmass
