Most informed news audiences, according to a Pew study. New Yorker / Atlantic / NPR predictably in the front, but surprises include Hannity and Rush beating Daily Show and Colbert.


it does not seem that surprising that Hannity/Rush beat out Daily Show/Colbert. The first two are news shows first entertainment second. While the daily show and colbert are comedy first news second. If anything I would say I'm super surprised with how well the dialy show did. Especially because their audience is so much younger.

it still cracks we up that 49% of colbert's audience got the who's the pm of britain question right, and the bbc's viewers got.....44%.
