I got all twelve right, along with 5% of the population that has mastered the MSM propaganda feed.The real question is how many people know this is about the mainstream media propaganda feed and where do they get real news.
Huzzah for 12 out of 12. I must get my propaganda from the right places.
12/12. I guess the five percent read carpe diem.
12/12 for me too. What should we do to the people who get less than 5? Can we remove voting rights?
Very cool!People who pay attention to Professor Mark also seem to pay attention to reality also...
There were only 11 questions when I took it (20100716T13:30 UTC). Even so, I got all of them correct.
Perhaps we should weight people's votes according to their test percentage.
11/11.Good idea, Rand. I'd go even further and require a general knowledge test(and ID, of course) before someone is allowed to vote. I'd bet anything the average Obama voter would flunk even this simple quiz. Which is why Democrats always fight against basic voting standards.
11/11Perhaps those posting "12/12" did not pay attention -- the summary is incorrect (likely an artifact from an earlier quiz).It would have been tougher had the answers not been multi-choice.Lastly, I do not post my "score" with pride but with horror. The test was infantile, and America facilitates morons.Maybe I should *applaud* the Obama administration; maybe we Americans *need* a period of adversity to wake us from our collectivist dependence...
The drudgereport study guide has done me well:"You correctly answered 11 out of the 11 possible questions, which means you did better on the quiz than 95% of the general public."
11/11They ought to ask political party and liberal/conservative. So we can see how stupid liberals actually are. Liberals flunked the recent economics test. The more liberal, the stupider. Which explains DC perfectly.
11/11 here, but this was a very easy set of questions.The demographic breakdown is interesting. Men did significantly better than women on all questions, except for the Twitter question. Must be a gender-biased quiz. :-)
11/11Depressing that almost 1/2 knew fewer than half of the questions. It's like Jaywalking, only statistically significant.
"Depressing that almost 1/2 knew fewer than half of the questions. "And that low scoring group of people VOLUNTARILY took this very basic quiz.We need to teach less civics and more diversity in school. Oh wait, we already do.
