A study that shows Fox News Viewrs have IQs 20 points below average. First, the national average isn't 100. Using a standard IQ test, the average is 100, EVERYWHERE. From Wikepedia:
An intelligence quotient, or IQ, is a score derived from one of several standardized tests designed to assess intelligence. The abbreviation "IQ" comes from the German term Intelligenz-Quotient, originally coined by psychologist William Stern. When modern IQ tests are devised, the mean (average) score within an age group is set to 100 and the standard deviation (SD) almost always to 15, although this was not always so historically. Thus, the intention is that approximately 95% of the population scores within two SDs of the mean, i.e. has an IQ between 70 and 130.
And how in the hell do you measure IQ by studying emotional responses to images???? And you want to know how ridiculous this thing really is? Consider this:
The study did not conclude if Fox News contributed to lowering IQ or if it attracts less intelligent humans.
How could anybody affiliated with science think watching a TV program could lower your IQ? This is literally hysterical.
