Idiots, you’re all idiots

The Anonymous Survey Researcher at Bad Research, No Biscuit exposes some shoddy statistics on HDTV, and his commenters conclude it’s an IQ test.  I think it’s just laziness on the part of the original survey group, ORC, and their corporate overlords, infogroup.  Read the article; the take-away lesson is "don’t trust self-reported data" rather than "2/3 of all Americans, including my parents, are idiots."

Tip from Emily Swanson at Pollster.com (my favorite Democrats).
