Here's a little, simple quiz from Pew Research about the news. It's a bit old now, but still relevant. When finished, it gives a chart, by percentage, of how the takers did. It's not really surprising that so many did so bad.

I seem to have gotten 12 out of 12. I didn't think I watched the news all that much; however, I guess I do spend 15 minutes a day reading it online. The last three questions that were personal I just skipped.

11 out of 12 - missed the one on demographics of poverty! Not bad for an "EX American"...
