Who You Calling ‘Stoned Slacker’?

Bill O’Reilly has once again put his foot in his mouth. During Jon Stewart’s appearance on his show a while back he kept referring to people who watch the Daily Show as ‘stoned slackers.’ Comedy Central was not too pleased, so they did some research.

And guess whose audience is more educated? Viewers of Jon Stewart’s show are more likely to have completed four years of college than people who watch “The O’Reilly Factor,” according to Nielsen Media Research.

Wait–you mean to say to that folks who watch O’Reilly are not as educated as…er…others? You don’t say! Related: For a similar study about how Fox viewers are uninformed, read this older post: This Is Your Brain on “Fair and Balanced.”
