While they might click right past “very bad” Fox News and skip school when it comes to Talk Radio, many, if not most “news” consumers are quite satisfied that by diversifying their “portfolio” to include CBS, ABC, NBC, MSNBC, CNN, PBS (on the television.) Some of these might even take an occasional dreamy ride on the waves of NPR’s cool, soothing, if not hypnotic tone while others turn to Comedy Central to have their opinions delivered via a more honest form of joking.
The exceptionally gifted among lefties will plod through the pages of “news” that was formerly delivered to their front porch and that ultimately served as tool for house training their pets.
This category of “informed citizenry” is kept “in the know,” and “filled in,” to their best discernment, well enough to share the resultant quality of opinions online and, when it was still possible, the old fashioned social gatherings.
Now since most of the very broad range and forms of media followed by the average Democrat all parrot whatever wind first breaks with NYTimes, they gain constant validation for everything they’ve come to “know,” along with a stroking of their immensely disproportionate egos from the larger choir. And whatever of the broad “all but Fox” range of sources for “real news,” repeats, enters into that psychological realm of “must be true.”
They’ll often reveal their warm embrace of the fallacious “they can’t all be wrong,” belief in their memes.
Those that are programmed by the “they can’t all be wrong” sources of their every opinion are extremely reluctant to learn that they’ve been fooled.
I notice that whenever I offer this quick 12 minute presentation as an invitation to become a “whole new” and “much smarter” version of themselves, they’re quite reluctant to even have a look:
We are all told, not only what to believe, but what to disbelieve. And there’s no more profound example than the so-called “fact checkers” that are among the biggest liars of the left. And when you ask those that they’ve programmed, “what ‘lie’ that Trump told you, do you believe should have us upset,” they’re generally at a complete loss to offer any specifics.
