Default A quiz on current events.

A quiz on current events.


Test Your News IQ Q1 - Pew Research Center



I did better than I thought I had with nine out of twelve correct.

They don't say which ones you miss.

Better than 75% on your little quiz test. Not bad considering I don't even follow the news much anymore. Too slanted these days. Don't want to run the risk that I'll see something about obamalamadingdong (god I love that nick name). Already sick of seeing him added to some of these dang debt relief and health insurance commercials.

Wonder if he's getting royalties off of them ... wouldn't surprise me the (beep)..

11. I think I missed the one about the filibuster percentage, but I guess we'll never know.

I took the quiz before Yunus posted the answers. I got 11 of 12.

I suppose now that everyone will get 12/12...

Yeah I didn't think that one full through. I'll edit it out

I posted them because Benning said he didn't know what he missed.
