    Why would a "Conservative" institute dis FOX viewers in a way that no serious researcher would? Until I get some hard info on The Intelligence Institute I don't believe this.

    Our reason is quite satisfied ... if we can find a few arguments that will do to recite in case our credulity is criticized... Our faith is faith in someone else's faith, and in the greatest matters this is most the case. - William James

    •  And, I tried to find this "Institute's" website. (1+ / 0-)

      No such thing.  There is, in truth, an Intelligence Institute dedicated to helping businesses understand their markets and competition. Business "intelligence" is in the nature of Central "Intelligence"  -- it's about spying, gathering information, analyzing data.  It's not about individual brain function or capacity.

      I wrote to Snopes.com about this and will look forward to the results of any investigation they might do.  I do find it interesting that Yahoo News published the story.  Maybe they put up whatever comes to them?  This one came from "WebPR" which looks to me to be a site ripe for messing with.

      The good we secure for ourselves is precarious and uncertain, is floating in mid-air, until it is secured for all of us and incorporated into our common life. Jane Addams
