Tea Party and the News: It's Not About Accuracy

My goodness, the coincidences we find when we're not looking:

From the NYTimes today (in a story about what constitutes the Tea Party):

"Tea Partiers also receive their information primarily, or in some cases exclusively, from Fox News and talk radio, outlets that are unlikely to turn a critical eye on conservative advocacy organizations."

From a recent Fairleigh-Dickinson University poll:

"Sunday morning news shows do the most to help people learn about current events, while some outlets, especially Fox News, lead people to be even less informed than those who say they don’t watch any news at all."
