    We have?!? Seems like you're trying to rewrite history.

    Because I'm pretty sure that history records that Barack Obama defeated Mitt Rmoney in November 2012.

    That was less than six years ago.

    If you can do the arithmetic.....

    Fair enough.

    Would you do me a favour? Americans here who consider themselves news junkies. Take a news quiz for me. NO CHEATING. No answers just give your scores.


    1) Last week a Russian federal Minister said that this NATO county's newly launched Aircraft carrier would make a "convenient target". It was front page news around the world. What country?

    2) on June 25th, The Russian government launched a cyber-attack against this NATO country's Parliament. It was front page news around the world. What country?

    3) Today, this European country deployed army 750 troops to the Italian border to physically stop North African migrants. It's a top three story around the world.

    4) For the past 4 weeks India and China have been amassing troops along their border. At one point Chinese troops entered India and smashed defensive bunkers, Indian border guards formed a human chain to stop them and herd them out. What is the dispute?

    5) The Gulf States (Saudi Arabia, UAE, Kuwait etc) have launched a boycott of this Middle Eastern country since June, based on a fake news report that Russia slipped into the State News website stating support for Iran. The Gulf States are demanding the end of Al Jazeera news network - the entire network- as their terms to end the dispute. What country?

    6) Name 3 of Donald Trumps children.


    I would expect anyone who follows the news to know these, except the last one. You tell me your score, then we'll see if this is an extremely serious issue.

    1 is Britian

    Do not know the answer for #2

    3 is Austria

    Do not know the answer for #4

    5 is Qatar .. I think...

    You don't want my answer for #6....

    I suspect, at least in this country - unless it's major foreign policy event, most of the stories you listed do get under-reported here.

    So good point on your part.

    I missed one.

    That being said, if someone ONLY watches CNN, MSNBC, or Fox they probably miss the bulk of them. Those topics, and others like them, are covered here though by non-cable news outlets, sometimes by the major networks and other times by print news and their web counterparts.

    We should look into incorporating this into the site though. You get more access, more total posts, or the ability to change someone's avatar based on how you do on a weekly or monthly current events quiz.

    1. I haven't lost an election for six years.

    3. I don't care about the American voter.

    4. 2018 & 2020 haven't occurred yet.

    Just sayin'....
    Sane or not, you obviously do not understand the difference between bias and fake news.
