18. +1000. I remember one study that found steady viewers

of Fox knew less about their world than people who watched no news at all. That was a bit less of a duh! before 2016. But more on point for us, people who watched MSNBC and CNN didn't do much better than people who watched no news at all. Those who scored highest were those who watched PBS evening news, or I think listened to NPR news, not sure.

Every now than then someone highly respected expresses worry about deluded views, resulting from watching "thoughtful people" push whatever groupthink gets them invited back, were doing to the nation. Just the other day it was one of our intelligence chiefs, worried not just about Fox viewers but about us.

So turn the boob tube off and read the news, or at least read it first to enlarge information and understanding, then enjoy favorite program.
