Stupid electorate

You know I hate polls, but this one is worth noting briefly. A huge number of voters are hopelessly misinformed on government spending. They wrongly believe public broadcasting gets $178 billion a year. The real figure? About $420 million. They also have no idea how little goes to foreign aid.

Why would they be so misinformed? Think it has something to do with the establishment media uncritically airing Republican lies and treating faked, criminally edited "sting" videos by far right extremists as legitimate news? Nah, me neither. Must just be a coincidence.
