Misinformers of the Year


Mazel Tov to Fox News' Fox & Friends, recognized for their "considerable contributions to the field of conservative misinformation" throughout 2011 by Media Matters. Other woefully influential misinformers rewarded for their stellar stupidity include Rupert Murdoch and Rush Limbaugh, who has "managed to shield his brain from 18 years of mounting evidence that humans are changing the climate" - and don't forget all those graphics artists, either.

"If there ever is scientific proof - and see, I don't need scientific proof because to me the people who are promoting manmade global warming are a bunch of frauds. They are liberals, they lie. It's not a generalization. It is an undeniable truth of life." - Limbaugh
