I’ve noticed a pattern play out often enough that it’s got to be a thing. Wondering if other people have noticed.
- Get into debate with a conservative
- They complain that mainstream media is junk or highly liberal biased
- I ask them what their idea of truthful news sources are (or generally what they prefer)
- They refuse to answer
Are they self-aware enough to know that the Breitbarts of the world are super slanted garbage which both panders to a certain perspective and massages the facts in order to do so? Are they afraid of their reality in some way being torn down?
It’s a simple question, and one I personally have 0 issues with answering when asked, and justifying my picks.
