political pop news


QUERY: Is FOX really playing partisan politics?

PONDER: With shows like The Simpsons, Family Guy, King of the Hill, American Dad, and others mocking everything (or do they really mock everything, or are big fat dumb liberals what they are really laughing at?... would FOX air South Park or Bill Maher?), not to mention other sex and violence filled shows, how could the network be conservative? Perhaps it is just the the news department getting that rap? Is the rap accurate? Well, there is at least one question in this survey that is clearly questionable: Churches should provide welfare services. Sounds good, unless that means the government should give our tax dollars to churches. That would be government support of religion and that's a dangerous road. History 101. So is it a disguised question for which the religious right would like to see a lot of YES answers? Or is it just a poorly worded question that can provide a variable, and therefore statistically irrelevant answer that leads to an inaccurate result? Either way, it blows the quiz for me and anyone into accurate statistical analysis or predicative science.

CONCLUSION: But it's still fun to take quizzes, right? :)
