    I already know that bias news (both right and left bias equally) sways people. Even if it is confirmation bias it sways a person into being more "staunch" (kind of what I think happens with you)... nothing new.

    Lol, yeah, you really have to search to find Fox in America... laughable. And websites all require the same "effort" to type out...

    Millions of Americans are also addicted to right wing AM radio which can be heard in just about every square inch of the US. So finding the conservative message isn't all that hard to do. It may be a little hard to understand in the beginning since there are certain bits of propaganda that have to be accepted as fact but once you pick it up the echo chamber repeats the daily message and you are good to go.
    It ain't what you don't know that gets you in trouble. It's what you know for sure that just ain't so.

    Dude, I listed all the left wing bias you don't search out that surrounds us on all sides. It's just there all day, every day. Did I mention the CNN website?

    Don't disappoint me, David. I believed you to have an open mind. Your statement above shows otherwise.

    And where does FOX News or right wing slanted news, entertainment, information enter your life unless you search it out, BTW? Last Man Standing? Lol

    You mean actively turning your radio to "AM" and actively turning on a right wing talk show?

    Yeah, that's exactly what I said.

    You aren't getting the point I made. Not sure if that's purposeful.

    IMO he is not interested in a point...
    He is interested in debate...

    Truth is a relative concept to liberals...
    They do not understand why some truths are good and some non truths are both bad and destructive...

    I simply think you are wrong. We disagree, it happens often with you and me, no biggie. I see there is relatively the same amount of material for conservatives that there is for liberals. After all, what is wrong with conservative dollars? The free market is fully in control. (I also see no difference in "access" to either, the mediums are a little different based on the differences in the audiences, but the access is relatively equal).

    I responded to the portion I quoted. About bias swaying people. If there is something else you would like me to answer, just ask. I don't always automatically respond to every point in every post. Especially with your long posts, but if you have a specific concern I will do my best to address it.

    How is this any different for your perceived left wing biased media outlets? The process appears to be the same for both. Freedom of choice.

    I explained it well. You are purposefully ignoring the reality I pointed out. It's a self preservation thing.

    Did you watch Dr Epstein testimony? He explains how it works well. Basically a MUNUMUM of 2.5 million were swayed into voting for Hillary by Google alone. Forget about all the other things I listed.
