It's like a segment of the population is wearing hearing aides and eye glasses that filter out everything they don't want to hear or see.   Call it living in a bubble. There is a major difference between the news "bubbles" we live in.

It may be instructive to look at the actual Fox News building in New York City and see how it has changed over time so their "stars" are now featured on the exterior.


About one-fifth of Democrats and Republicans get political news in a kind of media bubble


Thanks to loyal readers and new readers on my blog after readership languished between 700 and 800 a week for months it has finally broken the 1000 readers per week mark:
