Chris Wallace PWNs Jon Stewart Anew

Pretty damn good.

Wait 'till you see the questions on that poll which determined the viewers of FoxNews were largely "misinformed."

Here's a tease: A "factual" question, to which there is an "informed" answer and a "misinformed" answer, was "Is global warming occurring?"

Also delicious: "Is the economy starting to recover or still getting worse?"

Like I said when I posted on this: If they had asked what answer does the media and the Democratic Party (but I repeat myself) to be true and wish you to believe, everyone would have gotten these right.

That's a fact-based question. Like if I don't believe that JFK was shot by a single shooter (I do, by the way) but if you're really testing my knowledge you don't ask "Who killed JFK?" That's a question about my logic and interpretation of knowledge.

If you want to test my knowledge on this point, you ask, "Who is officially responsible for the assassination of JFK?" Of course all Conspiracy Buffs would get that right. Duh. It's not knowledge they lack. If they're wrong (and I'm pretty sure they are), they're not wrong for lack of knowledge, or due to being "misinformed," but are wrong due to interpretation of the knowledge they do have.

Similarly I think FoxNews viewers have more "knowledge" than pretty much any audience. The fact that they depart from the media's and the Democratic Party's (but I repeat myself twice) interpretation of the data is not an indication of being "misinformed."

Fact: There has been no global warming for ten years. So you tell me: Is global warming occurring, present tense?

And hell if you look at satellite data, there's been no global warming at all.

This divergence from the misinformed "mainstream" is a product of knowing more than the average news viewer, and hence not being satisfied with the pat babyfood conclusions the media and the Democratic Party (but I repeat myself a third time) wish you to reach.
