Fox News has a very good reason to fight an educated public. It’s the only way to prevent its audience from realizing just how stupid the station is.
In reporting on scientific experiments being conducted to determine the model for Leonardo da Vinci’s most famous painting “Mona Lisa”, Fox News reminded its audience that the “Mona Lisa” was painted by the famed actor Leonardo DiCaprio, from the movie “Titanic.” Fortunately for Fox News, its audience would believe it, and would be very impressed that the actor painted a 500-year-old painting.
Hahahaha! Shepard Smith just said Leonardo DiCaprio painted the Mona Lisa!!!! pic.twitter.com/fFTKFqn4k3
