Fox News Found to be Least Informative – Study Takes Apart Fox Credibility

From the Trenches World Report has been telling you for years that the MSM and cable news channels are basically feeding us garbage. This is manifested by many reasons, ranging from incompetence, laziness, fraud, and most importantly, spreading propaganda, the worst of the bunch. We have written about these traitors to the American airwaves constantly, trying to get the real truth out, and how it really correlates to world events. Some of it coming from websites that operate on a thin budget, thin meaning hundreds of dollars, not billions of dollars. Some of the thin budget sites have the best information, bar none.

We have tried to bring you information from individuals who call in to our daily show, “The Word From the Trenches” hosted by our founder Henry Shivley, recently co-hosted by JD. This information is about as everyday real as it gets, not written by some megalomaniac over at propaganda central. No Teleprompters here, just patriots who want the audience to understand the facts as they exist.  

Now that the world is tearing itself apart, we are seeing these propaganda machines starting to eat their own. The Trenches has been well aware of the Fox News BS and other mainstream sources are starting to see it for what it is – fraud among the American people.

As the world begins to fall apart and require honest news which isn’t biased or rigged in favor of the rich, we begin to see the battlefield casualties, Fox News being the first to be eviscerated.

Fox News viewers worst-informed, study finds

The Telegraph – by Chris Irvine, 24 May 2012

A study conducted by Fairleigh Dickinson University in Madison, New Jersey, found that the average American was able to correctly answer 1.8 out of four questions on international news and 1.6 out of five on domestic.

Fox News followers however only answered 1.04 domestic questions correctly, which is worse than those who said they watched no media at all – which stood at 1.22.

The study, which surveyed 1,185 people, found that in comparison, those who listened to National Public Radio fared best, answering 1.51 questions correctly, while those watching The Daily Show, which mixes current affairs with humour, scored 1.42.

“These differences may be small, but even small differences are important when we’re talking about millions of people,” said Dan Cassino, political scientist and poll analyst. “We expect that watching the news should help people learn, but the most popular of the national media sources – Fox, CNN, MSNBC – seem to be the least informative.”

Fox News responded by focusing on Fairleigh Dickinson’s academic record – Forbes ranked it 585 out of 650 US colleges.

    • Mark Schumacher - NV says:

      We respect all opinions around here even if they are wrong.

      Read the comments at the end of the below piece, are they all wrong too? Please do not insult our intelligence.

      Hannity is a Fox News whore….

    • Henry Shivley says:

      We are smarter than this and you are absolutely correct. All of the alphabet news agencies make up the propaganda machine. They work in coalition with one another to further the socialist agenda.
      Mark got Fox. I’ll take care of the rest so you can’t call it a hit piece.
      CNN – shit.
      NBC – shit.
      CBS – shit.
      ABC – shit.
      PBS – shit.
      MSNBC – hardcore communist shit.
      If I missed any, they are shit too. It is all shit.
      I have to believe that there isn’t a whole lot of subject matter out there to discuss, otherwise we wouldn’t be talking about this shit. 🙂

      • Jolly Roger says:

        Henry has it right. They’re all part of the same machine.
        They always pick on FOX because it implies that the others are better, and it’s not the case.

        They all send the same messages to different audiences, and the idiots feel they have some kind of choice in the matter because they hold the TV remote in their hands.

        The brainwashing/conditioning messages come from the news, the sitcoms, the movies, the newspapers, regardless of which one you “choose”.

        The Zionists are they enemy, and they own the media. Why is that so difficult for people to understand?

        It isn’t. They’re just afraid to break the TV habit. For many it’s the TV God; the giver of all truth and knowledge.

        WAKE THE F&%K UP!!!!!!

  3. Tom says:

    Five years ago this coming November, NBC Nightly News ran a story for the 45th anniversary of the JFK assassination on how Lee Harvey Oswald was the only possible shooter. I said out loud, “Why do they feel they need to lie to me AGAIN, 45 years after the fact?” I hit the off button on the remote faster than a cowboy pistol draw, and never turned the TV on again.

  4. cold340t says:

    All of these News(?) organs became Propaganda Machines after 9/11. Am I the only one who noticed? Fox is the WORST of the bunch though! OOOOga Booga be afraid, be very afraid!!!!!!!!

  5. Millard says:

    I agree Mark, anyone of the “talking heads” on any main stream outlet is going to spew the same BS that was handed down by tptb. They intentionally misleed and distract you in an effort to keep you from using your own critical thinking skills in an attempt to keep you from forming your own opinion concerning local, state, national, and world events. It’s like mass hypnosis and it’s quite effective when you see how many “sheeples” there are floating around.

  6. D. Gilmore says:

    Sorry Mark, and I did pick the wrong person. Since I dont watch tv, I forgot hannity was fox, but you get my point…..I was just trying to make conversation, and the responses were great…thanks all.
    I meant no disrespect, I come here cause I like it and do see people who are learned on what is going on…I meant no disrespect…

  7. D. Gilmore says:

    My point tho, is why they are picking on fox…and I still think its a conquer/divide thing…..ok thats all for tonite..thanks again all

    Poll question #1: Did you know…

    The Media Can Legally Lie

    In February 2003, a Florida Court of Appeals unanimously agreed with an assertion by FOX News that there is no rule against distorting or falsifying the news in the United States.

    “The press is impotent when it abandons itself to falsehood.” –Thomas Jefferson to Thomas Seymour, 1807.

    “I deplore… the putrid state into which our newspapers have passed and the malignity, the vulgarity, and mendacious spirit of those who write for them… These ordures are rapidly depraving the public taste and lessening its relish for sound food. As vehicles of information and a curb on our funtionaries, they have rendered themselves useless by forfeiting all title to belief… This has, in a great degree, been produced by the violence and malignity of party spirit.” –Thomas Jefferson to Walter Jones, 1814. ME 14:46

    • Henry Shivley says:

      No! It’s not true! I will not believe it. I don’t want to hear anymore. I’m plugging my ears and closing my eyes. Bla bla bla bla bla.

  9. TVnomore says:

    Here is why I have a ravenous distaste for Fox. It is too obvious.

    1) They constantly interrupt and shout down their “guests” when in any
    disagreement using the old bait and trap of the twisting of the subject matter
    to make their “guests” look crazy or like monster America haters. The simple minded ones of this country then believe this as a heated patriotic move by Fox that America can do no wrong because it instills fear in them! i.e. A) WMD’s in Iraq that led to our invasion. B) Bush was always right-‘good intelligence’. C) Let’s invade Libya. D) Lets invade Afghanistan.

    2) The FOX ‘show’ was so phony one could only compare it to the PTL

    3) O’Rielly’s contempted moves to throw people off the set like Bill Donahue and others with “I’ll have you thrown off the set for that!” “Get out” or “I’ll have my boys (police) after you ” -In which he actually had some of his goons threaten people.” Either this is an act or he is really a name calling idiot. How in the hell did he land this job?

    4) I was spoiled by times when the news was respectable like Larry King,
    Walter Cronkite. This has since gone to hell now.

    Fed up. No wonder the Red party is discombobulated now.

    Drew Pearson, Eward R. Murrow-where are you?


  10. Adam says:

    I’ll say this now…I had been a supporter of Fox News for quite some time. Not anymore. I was watching Megyn Kelley this afternoon for thirty minutes during my lunch break, and she just went off Obama this, Obama that, Obama can’t, Obama won’t. As much as I don’t like Obama leave the man alone. That’s the best thing any news outlet can do at this point. Quit talking about him, quit giving him airplay, quit giving him the time of day. Move on to something else. It’s gotten old, the people are tired and sick of it! Let the man fall on his own weight. He thinks he can do the job, let him go for it and let his policies fall under their own weight. That’s why I’m sick of people like Hannity, and Rush at this point! It’s almost as though they have been taken over and Obotomized to even speak his name. If Obama doesn’t want help don’t give it to him. He thinks he’s God Almighty tell him to prove it…cause in my mind he’s a worthless, arrogant pr#@k and jack ass…and I’d tell him straight to his face!

  11. Pete says:

    Well here we are 2013, and most people still do not understand that all
    MSM is propaganda along with much of the national print media, if not
    most of it.

    Of course most people are still stuck in the false paradigm of republican
    V. democrat, while the agenda marches on, no matter which party is in
    office. So I doubt that their choice of TV news outlets really matters much.
    Stupid is as stupid does.

  12. kim says:

    “News” stories that catch my attention in the LAME STREAM MEDIA that have an effect on important issues move me to investigate those issues on other sites. I’ve found that Aljazzera , Press TV, Pravda, and the Peoples Republic of China are much closer to the truth than any of those ZioNazi whores for Israel will ever get. Get your news where those fascist thugs haven’t infested their societies as harmfully as they have here in the once great USSA.
