The weekly News Cut Quiz

Last week’s high score was 13, posted by Kevin Watterson, Director of Public Affairs for the Minnesota House Republican Caucus. It might well be the high point for Republicans in Minnesota this week. His prize is that he will now be followed by Midmorning host Kerri Miller on her new Twitter account. We”re happy for both of them.

I don’t have a prize this week. Sorry. Maybe we can get people to donate prizes — maybe some raw milk or something.

Here’s a big hint to the secret of success this week. Reach each question carefully. Wait a second for the quiz to load. And post your answers and complaints below.

    Wow, this is far and away a personal best: 13/15! I must have done an extra-thorough job reading News Cut this week.

  • Shane

    Wow! 12/15! My PR as well!

    Almost got tricked by the Roger Clemens one. But caught my cursor just in time!

    Too bad I didn’t do this well last week.

    Kerri wouldn’t have had to worry about overloading her Twitter activities, as I have no account to follow.

  • Bob Moffitt

    What!?! kwatt won? I demand a recount!

  • kwatt

    An embarrassing 10-15.

  • Sam

    12. Again. I can never quite seem to get over the hump to 13…

  • Mark Gisleson

    10/15. Protein power?

  • Bob Moffitt

    11-15. I can sleep well, knowing I bested Kevin. Again.

  • Paul

    Crappy this week. 8 🙁

  • Cara

    13/15. My personal best.

  • Bob Collins

    Early precinct returns seem to be suggesting I made this one too easy.

  • Karine

    10/15, not my best. Perhaps a good prize would shout out to winner on 4:20 news update on the current!

  • ed -golden valley

    11-15 I’m happy.

    Possible 12 but, duh! Federal Grand Jurys get you for lying, not for what you did.

    Very well worded question.

  • v

    14 of 15, no hints.

  • Bonnie

    12- but ashamed to admit I did not know who the governor of Iowa was.

  • LK

    Took the quiz this week with the assistance of my better half, and as a result, my score doubled. 12!

  • Krista

    13/15. Normally, I get every sports question wrong, but this week, I even surprised myself. Mmmm…protein powder!

  • JackU

    13/15 – Reminder to self: Read “Welcome to Iowa” sign next time I have a chance.
