Kids Say The Darndest Things.....

Oct 08, 2013 -- 1:46pm

....as I found out when I was substitute teaching a Journalism class today at Socastee High School. I conducted a survey of the 21 kids in the class about some things in the news today and how many of them knew who or what I was asking them about. Here are the results:

Are you aware of the current Governmant shutdown? - 12

How many of you know who John Boehner is? - 6

How many of you know who had a special last night on MTV (Miley Cyrus) ? - 17

How many of you know who John Roberts is? - 0

How many of you know who Selena Gomez's ex-boyfriend is (Justin Bieber) - 19

How many of you know who John Kerry is ? - 7

How many of you know who Kim Kardashian is? - 20 ( one person actually didn't know ! )

Are you aware of the impending federal debt crisis? - 1

I told them they were (unfortunately) like most Americans that know more about Hollywood than Washington. And I told them if they decide to go into Journalism for a career, they had better get more familiar with Washington than Hollywood. After all, TMZ and ET only have so many positions......
