The Estimated IQ’s of American Presidents–Fiction!
Summary of eRumor:
This email claims that a think tank in Pennsylvania determined the IQ’s of American presidents from Franklin D. Roosevelt to George W. Bush, rating bush as the lowest and Bill Clinton as the highest.
This was written from the fantasies of someone who adores Bill Clinton and doesn’t think much of George W. Bush. The “think tank” is not identified and there is no such service as Bakersville News, a reporter named Jennifer Borenstein, a sociologist named Werner Levenstein, or a psychiatrist named Patricia Williams involved in any such project. Rich Buhler, the founder of TruthOrFiction.com and a former member of the news media says, “Take it from me. This eRumor was not written by anybody who has ever been a professional journalist. The style betrays the hoax as much as the misinformation.”
