Fundamentalist Christians find non-Christians to be less spiritual

Not shocking is it?  No.  I don't know if they do, but if I said so, I doubt anyone would be surprised.  Therefore, we shouldn't be surprised that an organization made up primarily of professors and academics who tack far to the left, in a university that, like most universities, tacks far to the left, has done an official study and concluded that - hold your breath - Fox News viewers are the least informed viewers out of some pool of viewers.

The quality Cutline on the equally high quality Yahoo News publishes this report.  Like most left leaning studies, and perhaps most people, it defines well informed by seeing things the way they see them. Those who don't must either be stupid or evil.  Most post-moderns, being a charitable lot, are willing to concede that those who don't conform to their dogmas are simply stupid, and not evil.  Though there is always the possibility of both.

All in all, not really a study or a story.  Just trying to round people up into the indoctrination camps.  I'm no fan of Fox News, but I can smell a rat when I smell one.  FWIW, I chuckled at Fox's retort:

Michael Clemente, Fox News' senior vice president of news editorial, responded to a New York Times piece on the report: "The latest Princeton Review ranked the University of Maryland among the top schools for having 'Students Who Study The Least' and being the 'Best Party School' — given these fine academic distinctions, we'll regard the study with the same level of veracity it was 'researched' with."
