[2-22-14] The Thinking Man

Post by ReasonablyDoubtful »

Yeah, we all read that survey, and let's be honest: It was very poorly done. The questions were more about political trivia (some of it was somewhat biased trivia, too) than knowledge of the issues or major events that have happened recently.

In spite of this, however, if you look at the breakdown, you'll find that those that watched cable news networks that agreed with their political idealogy actually were better informed than those that watched no news (and yes, that includes Fox News). It was when people were crossing idealogies that it had a major negative impact on their knowledge. I wonder why people would actually do that, but it makes me wonder if it isn't because that choice is being taken from them. For example, a college student living at home. College students are, by and large, idiotic and uninformed in general, but that's just speculation on my part.
Time to piss off people with logic and facts!

Re: Descartes watches FOX -- er, Cable News

Descartes can manipulate physics by time traveling, but he can't manipulate logic by inverse inferring. Them's the rules.

Isn't that putting the Descartes before the horse? :roll:
