If There Was a Contest for Moronic Surveys, You'd Get the Prize
In an effort to make Americans feel worse about themselves, the McCormick Tribune Freedom Museum published a survey that claims that Americans know more about the animated show The Simpsons then they do about their First Amendment freedoms.
An article published by the Associated Press cites that the survey found that "The study by the new McCormick Tribune Freedom Museum found that 22% of Americans could name all five Simpson family members, compared with just 1 in 1,000 people who could name all five First Amendment freedoms."
As I'm sure that this was a scholarly and scientifically responsible survey, the McCormick Tribune Freedom Museum must have had a myriad of controls, sample groups, a complete and thorough methodology, and a correctly analogous comparison and hypothesis. Oh wait, I can't find the survey anywhere because it is a bullshit promotional tool for this stupid museum.
A word of advice to the McCormick Tribune Freedom Museum, who's fault is it that the First Amendment isn't funny, animated, or aired ad nauseam on Fox? Well, I'm sure that it is the fault of the American public. Hey, here's another question. Why this specific (and irrelevant) comparison. Hey assholes, I'm not going to come to your museum because you are portraying Americans as idiots for an advertising stunt based on specious reasoning. Go fuck yourself McCormick Tribune Freedom Museum! Look at me, I'm exercising my First Amendment rights.
