A study released last week claims that Fox News viewers have an average IQ of 80 - which is 20 points lower than the national average.

The study has won national media attention via Yahoo News, where it's been Tweeted 500+ times and gained over 600 comments. It's become one of the top ten "hot" politics topics on Reddit, and it was also written up at the Daily Paul.

You have stated an opinion that I will try to verify with the facts.

MSNBC viewers are so dumb that
1) They refused to believe Karl Rove when he claimed that Romney would win the elections by a Landslide
2) They refused to believe Dick Morris,when he parroted the same opinion
3)Along with the opinions of Hannity,O'Reilly,Beck,Dobbs and other inhabitants of the Lunatic wards that predominate the Republican landscape.

Those who chose to believe them are now frantically trying to prevent their brains from seeking asylum at Federally Funded Mental Institutions operated by the Tea Party.......
My bad,you proved your point....

Don't you believe it,it's no hoax. That is a rumor started by Sean Hannity and Bill O'reilly so their programs won't be terminated,like they did with Karl Rove and Dick Morris.

In any event,I did my own study for my thesis which appeared in the November edition of Psychology Today.

My thesis makes it very clear that,not only does Fox News draw it's audience from those with a lower intellect,but,I also found that those who watch Fox News on a regular basis will become afflicted by what I call,Intellectual Regression,where their IQ tends to deteriorate significantly after several days.

The name Madcow says a lot about you.

Moreover,my research has led me to conclude that those who watch Fox News for more than one year,need not take an IQ test in order to determine their intelligence.Just ask for their shoe size and you have the answer.

If the average IQ of the viewers is 80, they would all be members of SEIU and watching MSNBC.

This shouldn't come as a surprise, the posts on Topix by Fox viewers
only confirms the study.

I hate their inclination, to accept Fox's partisan political agenda as the absolute truth....even when presented by facts that disprove, what they have been taught.....

So basically what your telling us is that your thesis revealed the Fox News audience is comprised of mostly black, high school drop outs, and poor whites and latinos. You liberals are so good at peddling hate and divisiveness.

I wouldn't label the MSNBC viewers as dumb, but they are hate filled and better at peddling hate then any other channel.

The far-right un-funny Greg Gutfeld filled in for O'Reilly on Friday and he started with his top story called: The Fiscal Cliff. Gutfeld started the show talking about the rapidly approaching "fiscal cliff" with the partisan Republican Senator John Thune, and no Democratic guest for balance.

Thune said this: "I'm glad the President is finally engaged, because you can't do big things here in Washington without presidential leadership, which is what we haven't had. At least he's now presenting something that will give us a chance to avert what everyone agrees would be a major financial disaster. But obviously there's a long way to go and it will be a tough needle to thread in order to get this done."

And that is just ridiculous, because President Obama has been engaged on this since the election, it's the Republicans who are blocking everything because the far-right of the Tea Party will not even go along with the rest of the party, they had a deal and the Tea Party killed it, so if anyone is not engaged it's the Tea Party idiots.

Greg theorized that taking no action and going off the "cliff" would please many Democrats, saying this: "This is a Democratic agenda with cuts to defense and higher taxes. What's not to love if you're a Democrat? Not to psychoanalyze the President, but he seems so obsessed with the top 2% that he's disengaged himself from the bigger problem, which is that we're headed toward being Greece."

And that is even more ridiculous, because Democrats do not want to go over the so-called fiscal cliff, they want a deal. Not to mention, we can never be anything like Greece, because we can print our own money and Greece can not. Plus we have the number of people to raise taxes to cover the debt if we need to, Greece does not.

Then Juan Williams and Republican strategist Alice Stewart were on with their views on the budget impasse. Williams said this: "I don't want to go over the cliff, because I have investments and it would be absolutely traumatic for the American economy and the global economy. If President Obama starts a second term with consumer confidence sinking, that's not good news for Democrats."

Earth to Juan Williams, even if we did go over the bogus fiscal cliff it would only be a small market loss, a deal would get done very quickly, and the markets would go back up, so either way your investments are going to go up, fool.
