They report, they decide

Here's a shocker: A University of Maryland study by its Program on International Policy Attitudes has found, for the second time (the first being in 2003) that regular viewers of Fox News are significantly more likely to be misinformed about everything from tax policy to climate science.

From Media Matters:
Last week, the Program on International Policy Attitudes released another, wider-ranging report on "Misinformation and the 2010 Election," which examined the accuracy of news consumers' views on tax policy, government bailouts, the economy, climate science, and President Obama's background. The findings were in line with the 2003 survey -- Fox News viewers were "significantly more likely" to be misinformed
 In other news, beaches have been found to be composed primarily of sand.
