    Who's fault is this shutdown? Defined by where you get your information.

    How about a poll that considers your background and potential bias? You have to first quantify where someone gets their information before you ask them how they feel about something. If you dont watch pundits and TV media news, and prefer to READ (wait, whats that?) instead of getting your fast food news and politics from the TV takeout window, please post as well.

    (Multiple choice is allowed. Comment with write in in a reply if I missed you in the options. )

    1. I mostly watch Fox and its all Obamas fault
    2. I mostly watch Fox and its all Dems Fault
    3. I mostly watch Fox and its all GOP and/or Tea Party Fault
    4. I mostly watch other than Fox and its all Obamas fault
    5. I mostly watch other than Fox and its all Dems Fault
    6. I mostly watch other than Fox and its all GOP and/or Tea Party fault
    7. I mostly watch more conservative outlets than Fox, and its Obamas Fault.
    8. I mostly watch more conservative outlets than Fox, and its GOP and/or Tea Party fault.

    What if you mostly get your news from nontelevised sources?

    Edit: and what if you think the whole bunch of them are at fault?

    Reply just like you did. I am the same way. I kinda browse all of them on the internet and when I see something interesting I start fact checking it. And I read a lot of different magazines and newspapers. I would say though that personally I search out most of my news via my fact checks. I dont believe anything I read from any of the media sites. However, MOST americans take it hook, line, and sinker.

    I would have included options for those of us that think they are all garbage, but it only allows 10 options.

    So:

    next option would be?
    11. I don't watch any of them and get news from the (internet, magazines, newspapers) , but identify as liberal: And I think ______ is mostly at fault.

    +1 on the not watching the news. If you want to know what's going on you have to read.

    I don't watch any of them very often and I don't think either side is totally at fault or that the other is completely faultless.

    I haven't watched TV since 1991 and all info comes from many Internet sources. I blame Teabaggers and Republicans.

    You just voted, kinda... Unfortunately, the poll was limited to 10 options only so I had to put the most common options.

    12. I mostly watch PBS and listen to NPR, and think its ______________________ (all of them?)

    How can the people be at fault for the shut down? It came out of nowhere and wasn't a platform than any got elected on. They compaigned to repeal Obamacare. But none of them campaigned to shut down the government and potentially default in order to defund Obamacare. Not to mention that one of the main players, depending on your view THE main player, that started all this was just voted into office from Texas straight ticket voting for GOP, and campaigned with over 9 million in campaign contributions to the Democrat he ran against with under $200k in campaign contributions...and the 9 million didn't come from the people, nor did it come from Texas even. (Senator Ted Cruz) The only way the people can be at fault is through their votes, and personally I think we are all pawns of the ultra rich and corporations if we watch or read any of the mainstream media. Its a very loaded issue when you start talking about voters and why they voted and where that blame lies.
