The extent of Americans' misbelief on issues varies tremendously depending on their news source. 56% of those polled said that they were following news about the situation in Iraq very/somewhat closely. Yet, when asked questions about the US invasion of Iraq, Fox News viewers were roughly 30% more likely to be misinformed about essential facts. Of these three questions polled, Fox viewers were 3x as likely to hold all three misperceptions; 80% held at least one. These misinformed beliefs among voters played a key role in generating and maintaining approval for the decision to invade Iraq.
