Rupert Murdoch ''exhibited willful blindness to what was going on in his companies''

Rupert Murdoch declared unfit to lead. The price of half-truths? - CSMonitor.com

The blind misleading the gullible and the wilfully igorant; a parable of corporatist wingnuttery in today's world.

The price inflicted on this nation and others is staggering.

Why should I? With the exceptions of Chris Wallace and Shep Smith, it's the Heart Attack Grill of news stations.

It actually makes you stupider than if you watch no news at all.

And you can't stand fox because they report things like illegal skags collecting welfare (stealing).

Or even report on ethnic crime against whites, the kenyans racism, moochelles ultra high cost lifestyle at the expense of the working......

Just to name a few of the thousands of true stories the liberal media simply ignores.

Being told that watching FOX News makes me stupider by Liberals is a badge of honor for any self-respecting Conservative.

Pure Propaganda from the Leftists.

I suppose FOX does so well in the ratings because they fail to serve their customers...

LOL

The best measure of the trust and performance of any company, including FOX News is by audience size and loyalty.

BTW, that clearly shows FOX News, and Newscorp owned papers like the WSJ to be tops in their field, and amoung their competitors.

The consumers know what works, and what does not. And clearly, the people of this nation vote every day with their eyeballs.

(Too bad the truth for you Liberals is that means your glorious propaganda no longer works, since there is a credible outlet for news and commentary that actually reports the truth, not just the Liberal adenda machine's talking points.)

Very true adjuster. The facts are the facts no matter how much others try to distort it. Thats the truth, truth.

If Fox News viewers want to be informed about current events, they might as well turn off the TV.

A poll released by Fairleigh Dickinson University on Monday found that people who get their news from Fox News know significantly less about news both in the U.S. and the world than people who watch no news at all.

In a survey of 612 New Jersey natives, Fox News fans flunked questions about Egypt and Syria when compared with people who don't watch the news. Fox viewers were 18-points less likely to know that Egyptians toppled their government and 6 points less likely to be aware that Syrians have not yet overthrown theirs.

Fox News viewers less informed than those who don't watch news at all: study - New York Daily News

11/21/2011

A poll by Farleigh Dickinson University in New Jersey showed that of all the news channels out there, Fox News viewers are the least informed.

People were asked questions about news habits and current events in a statewide poll of 600 New Jersey residents recently. Results showed that viewers of Sunday morning news shows were the most informed about current events, while Fox News viewers were the least informed. In fact, FDU poll results showed they were even less informed than those who say they don’t watch any news at all.

Readers of The New York Times, USA Today and listeners to National Public Radio were better informed about international events than other media outlets.
...

Fox News is the leading cable news channel.

“Because of the controls for partisanship, we know these results are not just driven by Republicans or other groups being more likely to watch Fox News,” said Dan Cassino, a professor of political science at Fairleigh Dickinson and an analyst for the PublicMind Poll. “Rather, the results show us that there is something about watching Fox News that leads people to do worse on these questions than those who don’t watch any news at all.”

I seldom listen to the propaganda from abc, cbs ,cnn or msnbc, as about 90% of what is on is lies and the other 10% is commercials.

You really do believe anything you read don't you. Polls are never accurate and you know it.

"polls" are simple quizzes the leftist media uses to see how well their propaganda sticks in peoples minds. If the quiz shows people are souring on the fake president kenyan, the liberals will start making up more false positives to get the viewer in a more favorable frame of mind about the fake president.

Then they will take more ""polls"" to see how well you're learning.
