Study: Few Americans Know 1st Amendment

The Associated Press just picked up the story of a report by the McCormick Tribune Freedom Museum that found Americans surveyed knew more about The Simpsons than about the First Amendment.

Only one in four Americans can name more than one of the five freedoms guaranteed by the First Amendment (freedom of speech, religion, press, assembly and petition for redress of grievances.) But more than half can name at least two members of the cartoon family, according to a survey.
