Proof I'm a News Junkie

I scored a perfect 12 out of 12 on this "Pew News IQ Score" quiz. According to them, that places me in the top 3% of the American public.

Take it and see how you do!

12 of 12. I wouldn't consider those 'news junkie' questions but questions all american's with an ounce of intelligence should know....there in lies the problem.

Dear God -- a reasonably well-informed chimpanzee should be able to score 10 out of 12.

Heck, your average Democrat voter should get 9 out of 12 -- and your average Democrat officeholder could get 8 right.

I can barely keep my eyes open right now and I got all 12 right. There's really no excuse for not getting at least 10. (I can forgive a few screw-ups, like I always have to think about Chavez and whether he's Columbia or Venezuela. I just have a mental block around those two countries for some reason.)

Only 10 right for me, as I missed the questions on the Dow Jones Industrial Average and the U.S. Federal Reserve Board. I can't help it - any discussion of money and my mind wanders off.
