But Nielsen doesn't do data studies, so it's flawed

If folks want to get excited that "their team" won a subset survey, far be it from me to pour cold water on that charged celebration. Some of us find it offensive that ANY NEWS organization either deals with ratings or considers them in their decision making. That pollutes the quality of the news that we receive. Fox delivers a subset of news to the demographic that says they like Fox and X number of other variables. CNN delivers a subset of news to the demographic that says they like CNN and X number of other variables. And everyone loses.
Hey McBear I think you have been using your new toy you got for Christmas too much. You and Rove are like two peas in a pod.

It's not my concept. Pew drew the conclusion. But the correct word is "LESS" educated, not uneducated. Those are two different things.

As for what the cool kids watch, I would assume "all of the above" if they have sense.
