How many misconceptions did you have, viewers? A study released today in the Philadelphia Inquirer reports a majority of Americans had "at least one" of the three largest misconceptions about the Iraq War. The study also ranks frequency of misconceptions by most commonly-used news source. Supporting or opposing the war, it's interesting to see just how many people had at least some of their facts wrong, and how much whoever was allegedly giving them their facts had to do with it.

I love that graphic. Fox News junkies are 10% more likely to be wrong than the next highest offender. Not that this is a surprise or anything.

I had no misconceptions. Only wide-eyed incredulity
