11/11, but I had to think about the one re: the US Chamber of Commerce raising foreign funds to put into election campaigns. I also realized when the explanation popped up, that FauxNews viewers would completely believe that one to be false even if it had been proven true six ways from Sunday. So I definitely would not call such viewers "better informed" on this topic just because they would cling tightly to the belief that any fund raising which benefits Republican candidates is good, no matter how it happens or where the $$ comes from.

Fox News fails to inform

...people who watch the conservative network that claims to be “fair and balanced” actually know less about politics and current events than folks who don’t watch any news at all.
...

"The largest effect is that of Fox News: all else being equal, someone who watched only Fox News would be expected to answer just 1.04 domestic questions correctly — a figure which is significantly worse than if they had reported watching no media at all,"...
