RUSH: I just got this, and I’m not able to study it and really make a whole lot of sense out of it. It’s a Pew survey on who watches television and what the partisan political split of various TV show audiences is and all. You get down to what the Pew — P-e-w — survey of this stuff, you get down to one section, who’s got the smartest, who has the most knowledgeable audience, and on television — just listen to what this says. ‘On television, The O’Reilly Factor, has the most knowledgeable audience, 27% of the audience are college grads, which matches the national average,’ but, but:
Only three audiences in the Pew survey scored higher on high knowledge than O’Reilly at his Factor TV show. Regular readers of The New Yorker and the Atlantic, regular Rush Limbaugh listeners, and regular Weekly Standard and New Republic readers. I don’t know if there’s anybody above that. I don’t have that, because radio and this stuff is not part of the survey, at least from the website that I’m reading this from. But I have always known it. I have always known that you people are among the most knowledgeable, engaged, informed, and educated people listening to any media in the country today. I think I found documented evidence of it here from Pew, but it’s just a little aside in a story about television audiences.
