(Newser) – Fox News doesn't seem too concerned about a University of Maryland study that found that the network's viewers are the "most misinformed." Michael Clemente, the senior VP of news editorial for Fox, responded by pointing out some of the school's own labels: “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 notes that the university ranked No. 19 on the Princeton Review's "Best Party" list, and also made its list of the "Best Northeastern Colleges." Click for more on the study.
