    Where does the lying come into it? Are you referring to denying / ignoring historical factors and systemic discrimination in people's suffering? Is there anything else?
    Back yourself.

    The key determinant is fear and negativity, not watching Fox News. People trapped in fear and negativity think and act in a certain way and seek out media and politics that confirm their beliefs. People who are not trapped in fear and negativity are not in this mental prison.
    Back yourself.

    A Fairleigh Dickinson University Public Mind survey in 2012 found that Fox News viewers were less well informed about domestic issues than people who watched no news at all.

    Researchers asked 1,185 random nationwide respondents what news sources they had consumed in the past week and then asked them questions about events in the U.S. and abroad.

    On average, people correctly answered 1.6 of 5 questions about domestic affairs.

    Because the aim of the study was to isolate the effects of each type of news source, they then controlled for variables such as other news sources, partisanship, education and other demographic factors.

    They found that someone who watched only Fox News would be expected to answer 1.04 domestic questions correctly compared to 1.22 for those who watched no news at all. Those watching only "The Daily Show with Jon Stewart" answered 1.42 questions correctly and people who only listened to NPR or only watched Sunday morning political talk shows answered 1.51 questions correctly.

    2012 was before the John Oliver and Samantha Bee shows began. Both worked on The Daily Show and I recommend them for good information with historical background.
