    • Has everyone seen this? https://www.marketwatch.com/story/how-biased-is-your-news-source-you-probably-wont-agree-with-this-chart-2018-02-28#true

    • There are many variations of this chart. Here's one I tend to gravitate towards.

      One thing that bothers me is in their valiant effort to be non-partisan and present both sides, I believe journalists of honest intent leave the impression that there are two valid views of stories where the facts are really slanted to one side.

      For example, the Schiff memo seemed far more accurate than the Nunes memo, but it felt like the press wanted to present it as two sides devolving into partisan bickering. That was true, but it was hard to extract the relative truthfulness of each memo.

    • I wish I understood this and could figure out what to do about it. I have family in southern Utah, in a county that voted 87.5% for Trump, in part for his promise to repeal Obamacare. Some of them are on the ACA and like that but they detest Obamacare.

      One of them with no insurance recently had some scary symptoms that the emergency room wasn't equipped to deal with, so we bought him Obamacare. If you call it the ACA, they'll accept it, but somehow our politicians created this confusion and anger.
