Hannity/Limbaugh fans most politcally savvy?

We can't have that! Time or the Censorship, er... Fairness Doctrine!!! Free National Enquirers for everyone! Go back to sleep America.

A Pew Research poll broke out groups based on where they got their news and asked 3 questions, the first (and most telling) being 'Which party controls Congress':

  • Hannity & Colmes: 84 percent
  • Rush Limbaugh: 83 percent
  • The New Yorker/Atlantic: 71 percent
  • NPR: 73 percent
  • Colbert Report: 73 percent
  • O'Reilly Factor: 70 percent
  • NewsHour: 66 percent
  • Daily Show: 65 percent
  • C-SPAN: 63 percent (Less than The Daily Show?!?)
  • CNN: 59 percent (Less than that?!?)
  • Letterman/Leno: 51 percent
  • National Enquirer: 44 percent
The really disturbing thing about this is that this means that 41% of CNN viewers must blame the GOP for all the stupidity coming out of Congress for the past 2 years. Its gotta make CNN feel really proud to know that 4/10 of their viewers are so politically stupid they don't even know who's running the country... Or perhaps that's all part of the plan.

Maybe this explains why Conservatives are happier than Liberals?

I just wish they had included a category for Keith Olbermann viewers.
