"More people own ferrets than watch Fox News."

Here's the takeaway summary:

Rather than waste time bemoaning Fox’s bogus journalism, liberals should encourage it. The more that Fox News viewers are duped into believing that the misinformation they are fed by Ailes is fair and balanced, the more easily they can be ambushed by reality as they were on Election Night 2012.

But Frank Rich's article at New York is brilliant, and very much worth the time for a full read.

Stop Beating a Dead Fox

The conservative news channel’s only real power is in riling up liberals, who by this point should know better.

 ... But these days Fox News is the loudest voice in the room only in the sense that a bawling baby is the loudest voice in the room.
