socalfitness saidI took a very quick look at the study from Fairleigh Dickinson, mainly to see if the results were skewed by less educated people watching Fox. The study stated they controlled for level of education.Trust me, it IS deliberate.............. and you 'know' why, Or are you that 'uninformed'?
My assessment is there are many people who watch Fox who are not worldly or especially sophisticated, and traditionally conservative. You know, the simple people who live in the part of the country the sophisticated elites on either coast fly over. These are the simple people who cling to their guns and religion (per Obama).
There are also those, as myself, who do watch Fox, but also many other sources across the political spectrum, both domestic and international. I think there are extremes in sophistication who watch Fox, and I grant that the unsophisticated impact the study results.
But the interesting thing is this: While Fox may have many who are not as sophisticated, and let's say it, not as intelligent as viewers of other sources, Fox also has the best and brightest. The comparison on Real Jock tells part of the story. The great majority of guys who are conservative on Real Jock are informed, and generally quite bright. Some of the liberals are bright, but the majority are neither bright nor informed. They rely on gimmicks (e.g. inappropriate use of caps), emoticons instead of responses, snide remarks instead of intelligent discussion, and increasingly dispensing of false statements. Could be deliberate, but I suspect often based on ignorance. On the whole, very average. So you guys can feel superior to the simple people who cling to their guns and religion. That's all you've got.
An acknowledgment that the far left on RJ lies? Reading comprehension challenges? As stated, average.
No its a statement of fact that INDEED "snide remarks instead of intelligent discussion" is deliberate. "intelligent discussion" is something the majority of the uber right here CANT allow. Therefore, you get what you deserve. There is NO one 'right' here but unfortunately if they disagree or bring other 'facts' they are labeled wrong and ultimately 'shut down' by the 'conservatives' Not to say this hasn't or doesn't happen with the liberal side of the house.. Not once have I witnessed a 'uber' conservative admit wrong even when history has proven it, common sense dictated it, and prominent conservatives have stated it. I'm sorry but 'discussion' doesn't start with "liberals are nazis" "liberals are bums", "you're wrong" etc etc etc.
Every member here has a different viewpoint, different level of education, different life experience. NOT one of them is "wrong". 'Discussion' isn't labeling, it isn't degrading, it isn't 'ignoring', it isn't condemning. It is an act or instance of discussing; consideration or examination by argument, comment, etc., especially to explore solutions; informal debate.
Notice the words used in the definition?
Are you going to deny in public here that there are NO lies presented by the "far right" here on RJ?
