When it Comes to Accuracy in News, Fox is a Whole Other Animal
Yay! Apparently, Fox News is VERY serious about its new "zero tolerance policy" to gain credibility and abandon the whole laughingstock approach that's pretty much been their bread and butter for the past, oh, ten or so years, by using actual facts instead of whichever voice is in Glenn Beck's head at that particular moment.
Fox News is so serious about adhering to these industry-wide journalistic standards of being slightly more competent than your average household pet that they even include a *disclaimer* about the "non-scientific" nature of their recent "scientific" poll.
Which is a big step for Fox! Just in case the small fact that the poll makes absolutely zero sense is lost upon the sharp, inquisitive minds of Fox News viewers.
Because sometimes polls can be very confusing! Especially when it involves Fox News getting a simple yes-or-no question like "Does Obama deserve the Nobel Peace Prize?" correct.
DOES OBAMA DESERVE THE NOBEL PEACE PRIZE? YES, HE DOES NOT.
Sharp as a fox, they are!
