What on EARTH are you talking about? BTW, a number of surveys have shown that Fox News viewers are the most detached from reality. Here's an example of one:

Can't infer from that that watching Fox News CAUSES the detachment of reality. But still notable.
BTW, I'm proud to say that I listen to NPR more than anything else on radio. And I'd listen to it more if they didn't have stuff like "WAIT WAIT DON'T TELL ME" on it. If they'd stick to news and analysis all the time I'd listen to them just about every time I turn on the radio.
Anyway, there are a few people on Fox News that are credible. Chris Wallace. Brett Baier. But in general Fox News is a very unreliable source of information. It's a propaganda organ
No more so than CNN & MSNBC.
I think Fox News is, at this point, worse in terms of total BS and bias than CNN and MSNBC are. But I'll admit that it's debatable.
Here's the thing, though: Media entities such as the Washington Post, the New York times, the main NBC News, CBS News, ABC News, Politifact, Factcheck.org, Reuters, USA Today, NPR, etc., are CLEARLY superior in terms of minimizing bias and maximizing accuracy than something like Fox News is. And Trump's fans are calling THOSE instituations "fake news." No. They're not. It's just that Real News does not comport with Trump support, And we are dealing with a cult-like situation.
