I agree 100% with this. But also want to point out if you read/watch CNN you would think it is a anti-Trump channel and pro democrat anything. I am bias, but if I am going to watch cable news, I would choose Fox News over CNN. Not just because of Trump (as i do think there are bias here), but outside of Trump the message is closer the middle then most.

With all of this said, I try to avoid all news channels, it is nothing but negativity. Most of my time is spent reading the Wall Street Journal, or other business type sites.
I mean the echo chamber works both ways, but I would say that people on the left that want to be informed don't get all their news from CNN. "Serious people" or at least people in charge on the right including the President absolutely maintain a steady diet of self-reinforcing propaganda of Fox news, which has been widely studied and determined to be not only biased, but outright least accurate network. Fox news viewers answer fewer current event questions right than people who don't consume any news as all. That is pathetic.

In other words a serious democrat probably wouldn't rank CNN as the best news network, but a conservative would rank the objectively worst news network as the best news network.

I don't think most of us would have guessed that in a time where there are more news outlets than ever, that people would so insulate themselves in these echo chambers. It's alarming. I read a piece about Trump supporters being shocked when confronted with what is in the Mueller report. Despite watching lots of "news" they had no idea the level of obstruction. They just thought it was 100% favorable to him.
I saw the same thing, saw the interviews, its why it was so important when Mayor Pete went on Fox News to try and reach an audiance he is cut off from.

I applaud Pete and Bernie for doing it. Dem candidates who criticized them for it make me want to pull my hair out.

In no way does his experience qualify him to be President, but when he speaks he sounds very Presidential and sounds like the smartest man in the room. I am very torn on him. I like what he says a lot, what he stands for a lot, but I know the mistakes Obama made were because of lack of experience and Pete would make the same mistakes. But right now no one is jumping ahead of him for me.

We're in the same boat. If I had even a couple terms of Congress under his belt he might be a front-runner. I wish we could switch Beto out with him.

He reminds of the guys I used to date back in the day. Smart, career-minded, maybe a 6 or 7. But fun.

Pete only a 6 or 7?

Good for me I am straight because obviously if I was gay I wouldn't stand a chance with you, lol.

(although to be honest, I am very popular when I have been in mostly Gay crowds, of course you have to like a bear, but I fill the role well...except I am not into penis)

Bears are very popular.

I think straight men have a broad spectrum of attraction to different female body-types too. But it seems society not only forces women to conform to an ideal body, but also forces men to adhere to that same type.
