    Thanks For Letting Me Clear That Up Regards,

    The question is, does MSNBC actually give the right a fair hearing?

    Does Fox give the left a fair hearing?

    Hmm! I must have missed the post by Bob G. in this thread that used any disparaging remarks to describe liberals. Must have been posted using invisible text.

    2.81.8% could NOT correctly say Joe Biden quit a previous campaign because of plagiarism (25% chance by guessing) Biden was later cleared of those charges.

    3.82.6% could NOT correctly say that Barack Obama won his first election by getting opponents kicked off the ballot (25% chance by guessing) Simply false

    4.88.4% could NOT correctly say that Obama said his policies would likely bankrupt the coal industry and make energy rates skyrocket (25% chance by guessing)Not true http://dotearth.blogs.nytimes.com/20...-coal-and-co2/

    5.56.1% could NOT correctly say Obama started his political career at the home of two former members of the Weather Underground (25% chance by guessing).Again not true. .http://blogs.usatoday.com/oped/2008/...ions-di-1.html

    For the questions concerning Sarah Palin

    1.And 86.9 % thought that Palin said that she could see Russia from her "house," even though that was Tina Fey who said that!!
    She did say though that you could see Russia from Alaska. http://abcnews.go.com/Politics/Vote2...5782924&page=2

    The rest of the questions are facts.

    So if I am reading this correctly it seams that the right is complaining that the media didn't broadcast these falsehoods about Obama/Biden loud enough.

    The point was about being informed.

    Are they informed?

    Or are you suggesting scattershot is the way an informed populace is measured?

    I will say you have a penchant for missing the point.

    Here is a counter to your assertion about the coal industry. this youtube clip is a 4 min segment of your posted clip.

    He wants to install a cap and trade system that in and of itself will bankrupt the coal industry (his words) by making it impossible with current technology.

    Your right, I agree with you a 100%, is the electorate informed was the point of the article. My point is why should you know about things that are not true. If you are going to ask people about something I think it is important that whatever you ask them about is fact.
    I think the Right will now promote this poll as showing that the left didn't know all the facts. The problem is these are not facts and that was what I was trying to show.
