Fox News Responds To Fairleigh Dickinson Study

Remember this study from Fairleigh Dickinson University yesterday? The one that said that viewers of Fox News and MSNBC were less likely to be versed in world affairs than people who watches no TV news at all? Well FNC has responded to the study in The Hollywood Reporter.

FNC responded to the study by referencing a Forbes ranker that trashed the school’s academic reputation:

“Considering FDU’s undergraduate school is ranked as one of the worst in the country,” said the FNC spokesperson, “we suggest the school invest in improving its weak academic program instead of spending money on frivolous polling – their student body does not deserve to be so ill-informed.”

The professor behind the study noted that it was not just FNC viewers that ranked low on the survey, other outlets, including MSNBC viewers, had problems as well.
