Preaching to the choir: Fake-news viewers more informed than mainstream news viewers

A recent Pew research study shows that viewers of The Daily Show and The Colbert Report are more informed about current events than "average consumers of NBC, ABC, Fox News, CNN, C-SPAN and daily newspapers." Pathetic.

Thirty percent of Daily Show and 34 percent of Colbert viewers correctly identified Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice, British Prime Minister Gordon Brown and the majority party in the U.S. House of Representatives
Think Progress » Colbert, Stewart viewers more well-informed than those watching O’Reilly, Dobbs.
