Intelligence Institute Study: Fox News Viewers have IQ 20 pts lower than US


LINK


I'm a conservative, but this seems right to me. Anyone who can enjoy Sean Hannity clearly has a mental defect.

Doesn't surprise me one bit, but I don't believe this.

Why just do Fox News though?

"Several previous studies show that self-identified conservatives are less intelligent than self-identified moderates. We have never seen such a homogeneous group teetering so close to special needs levels."



Seems legit. Who knew Reagan was such a retard?

One test involved showing subjects a series of images and measuring their vitals, namely pulse rate and blood pressure. The self-identified conservatives' vitals increased over 35% when shown complex or shocking images. The image that caused the most stress was a poorly edited picture of President Obama standing next to a "ghostly" image of a child holding a tarantula.

Yea, this sounds unbelievable. I hate Fox as much as the next guy, but I don't believe this.

Same thing if they would say this about MSNBC or CNN.
