Boom! Ex-Regan Advisor Bruce Bartlett Proves That Fox News “Self-Brainwashing” Makes Voters Less Informed.
It doesn’t get much better than this folks! When and ex-Reagan economic advisor publicly shames Fox News in an academic paper it’s like Christmas in May!
Bruce Bartlett recently published an academic paper that labels Fox News as a self-brainwashing echo-chamber that actually leaves viewers LESS INFORMED (surprise, surprise) and may have actually decreased conservative voter turnout for Mitt Romney in the 2012 Presidential Election.
Mr. Bartlett is right, and Fox News is part of an alarming trend in modern media that replaces facts with “spin” and leaves media consumers in the dark. We need to bring ethics back to mainstream journalism and stop parading Benghazi conspiracy theories and lunatic fringe conjecture like #JadeHelm as news. That’s why it was so refreshing to learn earlier this year that the French Government planned to sanction Fox News for openly misleading viewers.
