Misinformed Voters

To work, a democracy needs an informed electorate, or at least with enough informed voters to sway elections. Totally ignorant voters do little damage. They vote all over the map and cancel each other out or vote as informed voters ask them to. However, today, corporations like FOX News create large numbers of deliberately misinformed voters, who then vote for policies that hurt the country for the benefit of narrow interests.
