How well informed are you?

Here's a little quiz put out by the Christian Science Monitor.

Quiz (click here)

Quote:
American voters were quizzed on their knowledge of issues and facts raised in the 2010 midterm elections, in a survey by World Public Opinion, a project managed by the Program on International Policy Attitudes at the University of Maryland.

Respondents were also asked where they get their news from: Fox News, MSNBC, CNN, newspapers, network TV news, public broadcasting.

The survey found that "substantial levels of misinformation were present in the daily consumers of all news sources." But Fox News viewers were significantly more likely to be misinformed than those who get their news from other sources. And, greater exposure to Fox News increased the degree to which viewers were misinformed.

This is not simply a matter of partisan bias. People who vote Democratic and watched Fox News were also more likely to be misinformed than those who did not watch it though by a lesser margin than those who vote Republican. Those who got their news from NPR, CNN, or MSNBC were better informed on most but not all of the issues in the survey.

We've presented the 11 questions just as the survey asked them. How well informed are you?

.

Never have so many politicians, screwed so many Americans...just to make one black person lose his job.

Re: How well informed are you?

I will disagree about fox news and misinformation. That is just a general statement anyone can make. I could state that about any other news source and I bet people will believe that too.

But I am still a die hard Mike Savage listener. Gandy even you would approve of him. He places the blame on Bush as much as anyone else for the mess we're in.

They didn't "make a statement."

That was the result of the quiz that people took, who said they got most of their info from Faux News.

I have listened to Savage.

I quickly realized that his brand of racist, homophobic psychobabble of hate.....wasn't for me.

I don't hear him as racist, but yes he is on homo's. So am I. But that is not my place to judge. I just like the fact he says what most people are afraid to say on air openly.

Re: How well informed are you?

I was 10 for 11 also.

I thought economists were divided on the impact of health care reform to the deficit.

You need to read the questions more closely.

They didn't state as "fact" that the deficit would be reduced (it said "among economists") or that climate change IS occurring (it said "among scientists").



Quote:

At least you knew this.

We've had people state right here, that their paychecks have went down........ because taxes have went up.

It isn't clear, because you don't want it to be clear.

I'll bet you're not the only one who will criticize it or get pizzed because the facts don't align with your beliefs.
