This has to be one of the more pitiful segments I've seen on Fox in a while. I'll just say I don't envy either Bill-O or his guest Laura Ingraham with feeling they've just got to defend the Romney campaign if they would like to continue their employment for Uncle Rupert after the disastrous month or so that campaign has had, but this has to be one of the most lame excuses ever for why voters might not be too happy with Mittens.

Heaven forbid they're not watching enough of the GOPTV propaganda channel and getting some of their information off of the Internet -- O'Reilly Wonders If Romney Is Trailing In Polls On The Economy Because Voters Are "So Dumbed Down Now By The Internet" .

While sadly there is a slew of misinformation floating around on the web, I don't see how any of it could possibly be any worse than getting all of your information from ClusterFox, or the likes of hate mongers Bill O'Reilly and Laura Ingraham.

As we've noted here before, Fox viewers are less informed than anyone else. If anyone would like to know where that misinformation, or what most of us who speak plain English call lies, is coming from, just take a look at the screen shot above for a couple of the main culprits. I've got a lot more that could be added to that list and they're not all on television
