    The left wing networks are constantly attacking Fox News the same as Fox News is constantly attacking left-wing news but I realize that they are simply competing for our political souls so I take their criticism of each other with a grain of salt where as you appear believe every word you are told by the talking heads__I judge only by what I see_

    I believe the poll would have been better served if the question had been most honest rather than least biased_

    They are all politically biased but some do manage to be more honest in their overall news reporting than others_

    Yep. As when you are looking for ANYTHING, you generally stop as soon as you find it. You may search for books/articles on a subject of interest, reading perhaps 4 out 20 sources found, but you tend to stop after reading that fourth source, if (and only if) it confirms your initial belief, even though the prior three did not. Instead of reading all 20 and accepting the fact that only 3 out of the 20 agreed with your initial thoughts, or even acknowledging that only 1 out of the 4, that you did read, agreed with your initial thoughts, you still leave satisfied that you were, in fact, "completely" right. ;-)

    Then it should be no problem for you to present 16 sources of rebuttal.

    I am 100% aware of this human tendency and have been for very long time_

    In fact I have posted it quite a few times myself, although I have never credited it to Wiki_

    This is the version I happened across several years ago_(and my most recent use of it)

    The truth requires an open mind and a willingness to learn, but like many you do not seek the truth but only confirmation to what you already believe_

    We can always find a reason to deny something we don't wish to believe_

    It's a classic case of some one who's convinced they can outsmart their self_

    No im not. Not at all. Sense i hardly ever watch any of the "mainstream" oh! Excuse me, "lamestream" media.
    But if you just look out your shell you would easily see this.
    Perfect example of this right now; back when Bush was president and he used the dreaded executive order FOX News applauded it and all their pundits loved it! Also FOX was all about secrecy in the government, but now sense we have a democrat in office they hate secrecy and they hate that damn Executive Order, comparing the current situation to "watergate"!

    Also remember the death panels. Or how about the great Glenn Beck undervoering the "truth"? Or how about how Obama is a secret socialist, marxist?
