Pew Survey looks at Americans' knowledge of the news …

Coverage of the latest Pew poll on Americans' media consumption and knowledge of current events will no doubt feature much hand-wringing over the fact that viewers of the Daily Show and the Colbert Report are much more knowledgeable about current events than viewers of Fox News, although I'm not sure why that would be a surprise to anyone.

And the "reality based community" shouldn't take too much comfort in that fact, given that Comedy Central viewers only scored slightly higher than Bill O'Reilly's septuagenarian audience, and NPR listeners knew as much as Rush Limbaugh fans.
