Smarter Than The Rest

"Recently, [the nonpartisan Pew Research Center for the People and the Press] reported that, on a series of 'news knowledge questions,' Limbaugh’s 'Dittoheads' — the defiantly self-mocking term for his faithful, supposedly brainwashed, audience — scored higher than NPR listeners."

It was added that only 3% of Limbaugh’s audience is liberal (A.K.A. the chronically uninformed) but NPR's Ira Glass counts himself as a fan.
