Is MSNBC Divorced From Reality?

From time to time, MSNBC runs surveys to see "if you are keeping up with the news." In this week's survey, they have the most disturbing, heartless question:

2. The case of Virginia Tech mass-killer Cho Seung-Hui took a bizarre turn when a "manifesto" of disturbing writings and images by him turned up in the mailroom of NBC. The package was sent by overnight delivery between Cho’s two killing sprees. What delivery service did he use?

OMG. 32 people are killed, and they are testing you on whether Cho used FedEx, UPS, or USPS? Holy god. I know that the news has been replaced by tabloid -- but that's disturbing.
