Many people, including me, have tired of what we find to be objectionable and biased reporting from Fox News.
Unlike many of my progressive friends, I do watch Fox News -- but not exclusively, which is what I believe is precisely the problem with the typical Fox News viewer.
Lack of diversity.
Now, I don't mean that to be construed as a double entendre relating to Fox News viewers, although I think that it would have been a good one if I were that type of guy. What I actually mean is that the reliance on a single source for news guarantees an unrealistic understanding of the world around us. It is only by comparing and contrasting news from differing sources that we stand any chance of getting anywhere near the truth.
The following is excerpted from an eBook that I published today:
Upon reading a FoxNews.com article titled, "Fox News Poll: 78 Percent Favor Term Limits On Congress," written by Dana Blanton and published on September 3RD, I followed the provided link to the Opinion Dynamics Corp. poll results, which was the basis of the Fox News article.
The eight-page PDF contained many statistics, but no charts. Since charts can facilitate a deeper understanding of data and reveal trends, I decided to create an eBook of charts.
As the charts are presented, I compare what is revealed with how the numeric polling information was interpreted by Fox News in their article. I also provide commentary on my views of the meaning of the data.
