Hoax Study: Fox Viewers Have an IQ of 80

Yahoo and others fall for dubious survey

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.

Unfortunately, the study looks a lot like a hoax.

The Yahoo story is based on a press release supposedly published by the "Intelligence Institute," a supposed think-tank that doesn't exist. The press release provides no links to the "Institute" or to the study – the only link takes you to an unrelated study published by Fairleigh Dickinson University in May.

Scooter, again you fail.

You fell for Romney. You are the fool.

Not once did you post of his attributes. You only posted of your hatred of someone and showed your racism at its finest.

You can thank yourself for Obama's win. Your nonsense only showed people Romney was not the best for America.

Obama won because of Mitt's 47% comment.

The best campaigners for Obama were folks like you who are just full of hate.

Again you only read a couple threads when you need to read them all so you dont sound so uninformed..

The Real Reason Obama Got Elected

Here’s an interesting plot twister; Republicans made the assumption, incorrectly as it turns out, that voters in states with high-unemployment would kick the bums out. That is, that they’d vote Obama out of office and try to find someone who could solve the jobs problem in this country.

Turns out, the opposite has happened. Voters in high-unemployment states actually like the president, and the reason is obvious; the Federal Government is paying the jobless, extending unemployment benefits, food stamps, and even underwriting disability payments from Social Security.

Think we’re different from the Europeans? Think again. The proportion of Greek men in their 30’s that are working is higher than the proportion of men who work in the United States. That’s what this election was all about. People voted for free stuff, free money, and free benefits. A chicken and health care in every pot.

It’s not just the people who lost money in the recession who are hooked on government money. The total number of people getting government money are rising. In fact, most of what you suspect about entitlements may be wrong. If you think the proportion of people getting government benefits has been stable over time, think again. In 1983, less than 30% of us got help. Today, it’s 49%.

If you think Democrats alone are responsible for entitlement spending, you’d be mistaken. In the last half- century, entitlement spending has grown faster under Republican presidents than Democratic ones.

Think transfers are a small part of the Federal Government’s budget? Wrong, wrong, and wrong. Until 1960, government transfers were less than a third of the budget. Today, it’s two-thirds of federal spending. That leaves just one out of every three dollars for things like defense spending.

So here’s where we are; nearly 200 years after Francis Scott Key penned the national anthem and immortalized the phrase,“Land of the Free.” We’ve become just that, but not in the way we quite expected.

We’re the land of the free because an increasing number of us are getting a free ride. That, my friends, is not the American way.

Blah blah blah
I'm not misinformed. I'm aware of the threads you have started, what is it like 50 so far with different reasons for why Obama won and Mitt lost?..lol. No one else except Fox is concerned as to why Mitt lost? Everyone else is moving on and not crying about it like a little girl.

Wake up, you are a minority in this country.

Then why are you in Denver crying and whining all the time about your boy king ?

Who cares what a couple dooooshbags in Arkansas have to say about their welfare king ?

If you dont like Denver then dont read it.Or shut the hell up..

Its funny that you lefties just cry about me instead of have an intellectual comment to rebut the threads I post.

LOL..Thats funny..I dont suppose you have ANY shred of proof to what you just said ? Ill bet not.. But I do..lol. Ill bet you actually beleive your lefty media huh..I got news for ya..Michelle does have the biggest staff in history burning up millions of taxpayer dollars every day..Thats all old news..But what is new news is...exactly the same as the last four years..How could so many people be so stupid as to vote for more of this ?
Oh yea..Welfare pays better than working for most of obamas supporters.

( CNSNews.com )– Excluding January 2009, the month when Barack Obama was inaugurated, unemployment has stayed above 8 percent, which is longer than under any other administration since the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) started measuring the monthly jobless rate: Over 8 percent for 43 months during Obama compared to a total of 39 months above 8 percent between 1948 and 2008.

Over the course of 50 years, the unemployment rate in the United States was above 8 percent for a total of 3 years and 3 months; under Obama alone, the rate has been above 8 percent for 3 years and 7 months.

Also, no other president presided over three consecutive years of average annual unemployment of more than 8 percent before Obama, according to the BLS data.

No one is crying here but you.

Why don't you take the approach I do when you post in Paragould? I don't post replies trying to get you to leave or complain that your not from Paragould.

Yet, all you can do is insult, complain and cry about me posting here. There are plenty of examples of it. I do enjoy you making a fool out of yourself here especially when you beg for folks to post in the threads you start..lol. Keep up the good work.

Frank, I heard Rush claim the pre-election polls were skewed towards the Democrats numerous times. I listened to him last week and he was still talking about that and how at 5pm the day of the election he knew Romney had lost after hearing some exit poll results.

So to Snipper I say, that one is true, deal with it.
