Are you smarter than the average Fox News viewer? Christian Science Monitor has a multiple choice test ... by gimleteye

You might not be aware why it is important that Larry Summers withdrew his name from consideration by the president to be the next Fed Chair, but are you smarter than the average Fox News consumer? check it out from the Christian Science Monitor.

"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." Snap!

I'm embarrassed that I got one wrong. I get my news from NPR and the NYT.

Clearly I suffer from information overload..but did better than average and was happy to be reminded/corrected on the questions I did not answer correctly.
