Exactly. It's hard to get to to questions of interpretation when you can't even agree on basic facts. While I love me some tasty internets, it does seem like the internet allows people to seek out bias-affirming information and opinions.Originally Posted by Jennifer:
Media has fractured information and put so much spin on it that we have no way of telling what is true anymore anyway... so what's the point of arguing rationally? We've lost any sense of baseline
I'm not sure if the increasing media bias (on both sides) is a side-effect of that, or just another factor that exacerbates the issue.
