Study Shows Fox Bias Does Not Affect Viewer's Opinions

A study by Stefano DellaVigna of the University of California, Berkeley, and Ethan Kaplan of the Institute for International Economic Studies at Stockholm University found that viewers realize there is bias in news sources such as Fox. The good news, if they are correct, is that people filter out the bias and this does not affect election results.

I hope they are right, but still wonder about the cumulative effect of all the biased reporting which creates an echo chamber which might do more harm than any one right wing propaganda source might do on its own.
