Moon Walk Deniers Still Out There

In the United States, only 6% of Americans believe that the Moon landings were faked, with 5% saying they are not sure, though Fox claimed to have data showing that the figure increased to 20% after they aired a 2001 documentary promoting Moon landing conspiracy theories. Abroad, belief in Moon landing conspiracy theories is more common. For example, some 28% of Russians and 25% of Britons deny that American astronauts ever landed on the Moon.

From here.

Yesterday was the 40th Anniversary of the first moon walk.

It's a little odd to see Fox exaulting in the role it plays in spreading ignorance as well.
