    From MSNBC. Fifty multiple choice questions.

    I only scored 60%. I'm a news 'skimmer.' :rolleyes:

    50% and I watch CNN maybe 5 minutes a day

    EDIT: Oh, and I live about 6000 miles from the US ;)

    I stopped taking the quiz after this question:

    This isn't news. I see no reason for this to be on a news quiz.

    Agree. Not a very good quiz for sure.

    Here I thought I was a news junkie, but I got only 84% right. I missed 12, 18, 19, 31, 33, 37, 39, & 40. I'm ashamed to say I got the Britney Spears question right, but my only saving grace is that I guessed. ;)

    32% baby. :)

    I don't watch the news unless I happen to be channel surfing, and the first few words catch my attention

    Also, some of the stories were mentined on MR :D

    76%. I missed most of the sports and celebrity/pop culture questions because well, I don't much care about either for the most part.

    I gave up when I realised it was entirely US-centric :eek:

    56% not bad for a quiz made up with 80% american questions about senators, golf and britney spears

    at least the world cup questions were easy ... especialyl the second one where msnbc simply made up player names because naming 3 other italian soccer players were too difficult :rolleyes:
