Don’t Like Muslims? You Must Be A Fox News Viewer

Think Muslims are slowly taking over the country?  Worried that they might impose some sort of sharia law?  Positive that the President may even be a secret Muslim, or at least harbor some sympathies to the religion?

A new study says that you’re probably someone who watches Fox News.

Via Think Progress:

As highlighted by the Washington Post’s Greg Sargent, a new survey from the Public Religion Research Institute reveals “a significant correlation between trust in Fox News and negative attitudes about Muslims. The study’s authors conclude:

Americans who most trust Fox News are more likely to believe that Muslims want to establish Shari’a law, have not done enough to oppose extremism, and believe investigating Muslim extremism is a good idea.

Indeed, more than twice as many Republicans who most trust Fox News think Muslims want to establish Sharia law in the U.S. as Republicans who trust other media outlets — 41 percent of Fox viewers compared to just 23 percent of other Republicans.

As Sargent notes, “we’ll never know whether Fox watchers harbor these views because they watch Fox, or whether they watch Fox because they harbor these views.”

Apparently Fox viewers are now no longer just more misinformed about facts than the average news watcher — they’re more Islamophobic, too.

"Xinans" shows your prejudice.. Who are you to comment about prejudices.
CHRISTIANS--- get it? We believe in CHRIST..
Are Mohammad believers 'Madians' ? dumbanddumber I have no reservation about saying the name Mohammad----- do you? Annmarie... you are a wee bit hypocritical... And yes... Do watch Fox news so you can see and hear and watch what is REALLY going on in our country . Fair and Balanced... (if you don't watch it you will never understand what 'free thinking' is really all about. )

Don't watch Fox News. But I have several years of experience in what islam and muslims are about and can say that I fear a take-over by both the xtians and muslims. Sharia laws are a reality in Western countries as they are used in the mosques. As I said, I also fear xtians, because of their hateful and violent message and actions. Norway has suffered tremendously since July 22, 2011 at the hands of an xtian terrorist. Clinics have been bombed, doctors murdered and builings blown up by xtians, just as muslims have done the same. I don't want a take-over by neither religion. If you want to engage in beliefs in mythology, keep it to yourself. Do not push it down my throat and do not expect a hand-out from the tax payers!

İ live in turkey the only muslim country without sheria.i cant say i m muslim 0 i m closer to angosticism and i sometimes cant believe the things that written in quran.the most thing that i hate is,they say women has to use a scarf to hide her hair or cant wear mini skirt blabla but men r free..i just say if there s a god,it migjt not be as idiot as to be busy with my hair :D so i sometimes believe that book is written by people a long long time ago.maybe it s same for other books too..who may know?but even i hate fanatic muslims,i m not agree that all of them r terorists.killing people,being sycopat doesnt have any relation with religion its just about character.we know how does u.s.a supports terorism in turkey,they give weapon to terorism doesnt have religion,doesnt have last,i wanna add something,as u know our principle!!'s wife uses that stupid thing on her head but we dont have to use that,turkey is free about religious rules
