The Pew News IQ Test


I found this on smays.com and it really struck me how dumb we are as a country. These are pretty easy questions about the news and current events. I got 12 out of 12. Think I'm lying?

Here's my score. That puts me in the 97th percentile and places me WAY ahead of others.

If half of the country can't answer the questions we should know by heart, then we WILL fall for anything wrapped in a 30 second ad or a soundbite on TV.


Shh, hey did you hear Obama is a muslim and his wife is a terrorist? And that fist bump thing they did? It's a gang sign, right?


Here's the test, try it yourself.

Greetings from a fellow 97-er. I found the answers quite easy. The "man on the street" interviews always amaze me - people are pretty uninformed.
