Limbaugh says it’s time to turn off Fox News

Limbaugh says it’s time to turn off Fox News

“So your blood pressure is going to suffer if you keep watching these people,” Limbaugh added. “They’re designed to get you ticked off. They’re designed to make you question your sanity. You’re gonna watch these people and say, ‘How in the world can we have such idiotic people?’ And you’re gonna thing maybe they’re not and you’re crazy. And I assure you, Tony, you’re not. Trust me on that.”

A recent Gallup poll of Americans’ news consumption habits revealed that Fox News is still the most popular 24-hour news network, with about 8 percent of Americans who use TV as their primary source of news tuning into the Republican-leaning channel. As such, a whopping 94 percent of their viewing audience claims to be either a strong Republican voter or at least leaning Republican.

However, a University of Maryland study published in 2010 discovered that Fox News viewers were the most widely misinformed news consumers around on a whole host of issues. A full 60 percent of Fox News viewers surveyed said climate change is not happening; 63 percent said the president is not an American citizen or that his citizenship is unclear; and a whopping 91 percent thought that the economy-saving Recovery Act, widely credited with preventing another Great Depression, somehow cost American jobs instead of bolstering the economic recovery.

OMG. Talk about designed to make you insane. It is no wonder the brainwashed masses sound like they are from Mars. All of the issues the Gallop poll mentioned are the only sane thoughts the neoconned conservatives have. This is all meant to cause cognitive dissonance. The good news is that only 8% of Americans use television as their primary source.

Rush on Snowden

"he's a punk". Rush on NSA spying "its no big deal". Rush the other day when asked by a Fox News anchor about the NSA spying "I'll have to get back to you on that"!
What people REALLY need to quit doing is believing anything Flush Limblard says... The guy is a crap bag....

"If ever time should come, when vain and aspiring men shall possess the highest seats in Government, our country will stand in need of its experienced patriots to prevent its ruin."
Samuel Adams

I dunno

how anyone can listen to him or Beck, Hannity etc.

Ron Paul is My President

I guess I'm part of the

"91 percent thought that the economy-saving Recovery Act, widely credited with preventing another Great Depression, somehow cost American jobs instead of bolstering the economic recovery."

Or am I supposed to believe 7% unemployment is good now?
And It's good that it took this long to get here.

Of course they will say climate change isn't happening! If the questioning implies man made climate change and not cyclical climate changes.

I can't stand any cable news network, but these views are hardly insane. Except maybe the Obama citizenship thing, which I don't think Fox touches anymore.

Is it insane to think the economy would be exactly where it is right now without any government intervention?
If so, I'm freakin nuts.

say wha????

I'm am surprised....

In other news

A recent study by University of Maryland researchers finds that University of Maryland researchers have their head up their ass.

Not True - He Said nothing like that.

He did not say anything like that.

He was referring to one specific Obama worshiper gal that was on a Fox Show as the "rebuttal"

Rush is still a Big Fox News supporter and all the people who watch Fox and listen to Rush still think that Fox is 100% right all the time and that Fox is giving them the only news that they care about and that George Bush is the greatest person of all time. (And that Ron Paul is stupid because Fox Says so.)

This is all from one misrepresented article that everyone else is running with. (Now the DP is running with it indirectly)

Rush is having fun with this as it illustrates his point about how the media is not doing its job and getting the facts straight is irrelevant to the media.

Too bad that Rush does not realize that the "incorrect" articles about not watching Fox News are actually the correct course of action for free thinking people.
