Self-created information disadvantage
I found this article fascinating and agree with it completely.
It's not very long, but just too many good parts to selectively cut and paste here.
It basically says what a lot of people on this forum have been saying for a long time on topic after topic.
I hope that conservatives here will read it with an open mind and report back their take on it.
I thought this election might be the final straw that would show conservatives that only watch Fox and read right wing websites that the information they are given is not accurate. However, from reading the recent posts here about that, it looks like I was wrong. We aren't talking about opinion, or different takes on the same thing. We are talking about interpreting data (polls) to determine who was leading the race. Math, it was just math.
I can't understand it. If I was totally misled by the news outlets I watched and read, I would be pretty p'd off and would find a new source.
Yet, that is not happening and I just don't get it.
Don't get me wrong -- I'm perfectly fine with the right wing continuing on with business as usual, but I am fascinated that they are not learning from this experience and will continue to just get their news from the same sources when it's proven to be wrong.
