Fox News' reply

The New York Times is reporting that Fox News has replied to the findings that I discussed this morning:
Asked for comment on the study, Fox News seemingly dismissed the findings. In a statement, Michael Clemente, who is the senior vice president of news editorial for the network, said: “The latest Princeton Review ranked the University of Maryland among the top schools for having ‘Students Who Study The Least’ and being the ‘Best Party School’ – given these fine academic distinctions, we’ll regard the study with the same level of veracity it was ‘researched’ with.”
The New York Times goes on to mention that in the latest Princeton Review the University of Maryland was rated as amongst the 'Best Northeastern Colleges' and placed just 19th in the list of 'Best Party Schools'. Clearly the study did more 'research' than Fox did...
This is just the kind of hard-hitting journalism we've all come to expect from them. It seems to me that, rather than discrediting the study, Fox appear to have rather proved their point... But then again, this is the company that once tried to sue The Simpsons. Before they were told that The Simpsons is also made by Fox...
