Sixty percent of Americans believe at least one of these incorrect statements about the war in Iraq, according to a new study: that US forces found WMDs, that evidence shows Saddam Hussein collaborated with the 9/11 terrorists, and that international public opinion about the war was either overwhelmingly in favor or evenly divided. Of those holding these misperceptions, only 23 percent said they get their news from NPR or PBS. A startling 80% of those who rely on Fox News thought at least one of these statements to be true. Fox's comment on this? None whatsoever.
