FOX Has No Effect On Neo-Con Trend

USA -- The results of a recent study found that FOX News has had no influence on the growing trend toward Conservatism in the United States. Rupert Murdoch’s FOX News Channel, which began operations in 1996, has a political perspective that is clearly to the right of most other media outlets. So a study was conducted by two economists – Stella Doro Viagra of the University of Cal-Berkeley and Ethanol Klaphander of the Institute for Any-Grant-Available Studies at Stockholm University - to find out if FOX News has contributed to this trend. Paid for by a consortium of Left Wing organizations who desperately fear FOX News and despise its overwhelming popularity, the study revealed some interesting facts.

The study examined whether the introduction of FOX in a community influenced residents to vote for George W. Bush over Al Gore in the 2000 election, as compared with how many voted for Bob Dole over Bill Clinton in 1996. The study found that towns that offered FOX before the year 2000 increased their vote share for the Republican presidential candidate by 6 percentage points, going from 48% to 54%. But amazingly, those towns that did NOT offer FOX actually saw a slightly larger increase of 7 percentage points, from 47% to 54%.

"The conclusion we must draw from this", said Viagra, "is that despite the concerns of many in the Democratic Liberal camp, FOX News has had little or no effect at converting people into Conservative Republicans". Klaphander added, "That's correct. Lib Dems can relax. Our study clearly shows that the number of Conservative Republicans in the U.S. increased by 6% to 7% without the help of FOX News."

I guess this means Viagra's study found a growing trend in conservatism in the Country, which Claphander grudgingly acknowledged.

But does the "Neo-con" trend have any effect on FOX?

Does this mean that Peter Sellers was "After the Fox" for no good reason?

onlineanalyst,
I think Peter Sellers was "BEFORE the FOX" ...but I guess you knew that.

I assume therefore that, by definition, the female newsreaders at FOX News (i.e., Lorie Dhue, Paige Hopkins, Uma Pemaraju, etc.) are all "FOXY Ladies"? Inquiring minds want to know.

I think they outlawed that, even in Louisiana. Cockfighting is still legal though.
