12.15.10 -- University of Maryland -- A recent survey of American voters by the University of Maryland's Program on International Policy Attitudes showed that Fox News viewers have more incorrect information than people who get their news from other sources.
And the more they watch Fox News, the more misinformation they have.
Here is a list of what Fox News viewers believe that is untrue:
>91% think the stimulus legislation lost jobs
>72% think health reform legislation is going to increase the deficit
>72% think the economy is getting worse than it was under George Bush
>60% think climate change isn't happening
>49% think Obama has raised income taxes
>63% think stimulus legislation did not include any tax cuts
>56% think Obama started the GM/Chrysler bailout
>38% think that most Republicans opposed TARP
>63% think President Obama probably wasn't born in the U.S.

Other media studies have had similar results. A PIPA study showed a majority of Fox viewers believed things that were not true about the Iraq war. And there was an NBC/Wall Street Journal poll that showed Fox viewers' misunderstood health care reform.
