Thanks for the reply and link. I gave it a read and similar things have been said numerous times. I have to agree with him but that's nothing new. I would say someone reading Krugman is likely to be left leaning - would you not agree? Certainly it's no guarantee and like you, I also read right leaning news because I want to know my biases and to hear multiple perspectives of the story. I read Fox news and even Breitbart on ocassion though I don't think Breitbart is good for my brain. I'd say reading the commentaries on Fox news articles is most enlightening if you want to understand where the far right is at. To me it's actually disturbing to see how truly out of touch many of them really are. Having a favourite past time devoted to studying critical thinking makes me cringe at where things are headed. I like to focus on the positive though and tend to remind myself that it exposes the real problems, biases, ignorance and hatred so that it can be addressed.
