A new Pew Research Center survey found that only around one in four American adults could, practically-speaking, tell the difference between factual statements and opinion. The poll, which surveyed more than five thousand adults, asked those involved to correctly identify five factual statements and five opinionated statements. All told, 39 percent correctly identified all five factual statements, and 44 percent (again, tops in any group) identified all five opinion statements. That honor belongs to those who don’t consider themselves digitally savvy, with 13 percent identifying factual statements correctly and 21 percent identifying the opinions.
