Bill O'Reilly -- Quizmaster

There are a lot of news quizzes out there, the Pew one being the most famous, but did you know Bill O'Reilly has his own news quiz?  Me neither. Try out your knowledge here.

Lemme just say I sucked.  I got only 5 of 10 correct.  I'll blame it on grading, on end-of-semester distractions, on a lack of caffeine.  At least I was average of those who took the survey.

The quiz is flawed, FWIW. Question two asks, "Which nation recently launched its first aircraft carrier?" and implies the correct answer is China.

China "recently" landed its first plane on an aircraft carrier ... that was commissioned two months ago ... went through sea trials 18 months ago ... and whose keel was laid by Russia in the mid 1980s.

But, you know, accuracy is a main stream media thing.

Sorry, that should have been "mid 1990s" not 1980s.
