FakePewResearch Mentioned on Slate and Wall St Journal Blogs

Fake Pew Research was featured on the Slate culture blog Browbeat, “Like its forebear, @FakePewResearch takes an iconic journalistic tool—in this case, polling data—and throws in just the right amounts of irony, pop-culture geekery, and absurdism. The resulting feed has the flavor of old Onion infographics back when best-selling CDs were still a common subject of conversation.”

The Wall Street Journal Ideas Market also featured FakePewResearch, “You’ve heard of the Pew Research Center, perhaps — purveyor of earnest surveys and reports on various aspects of American life? Well, Twitter has given rise to Fake Pew Research. The feed delivers demographic factoids that are a mite more unusual than the ones promulgated by Real Pew.”
