2. Your post ...

pretty much sums it up. For a while it felt like a parallel universe, a twilight zone, or x-file episode actually more like invasion of the body snatchers or that movie I think was called "the stuff". I'd check the news places see the polls the stories etc and be shocked at the other side's (for lack of a better term) take on the same thing I either just saw or read. My biggest shock came from cnn. I had to make sure I was on the correct channel as during the election cycles they resembled faux noise then anything else.

Over this past weekend I kept wondering if they were really believing all the BS. I thought for sure they have to be worried the polls even the very right leaning ones showed their guy losing ground. Part of me was hoping they didn't see this coming.

So election night when everything happened the way I thought (along with 52% of the rest of country) it would, I kinda felt vindication. Because as like you I look for news in every place expect for Faux Noise - its not news its not even entertaining its propaganda. Honestly in that chart of viewers for election night and the drop off that fake network saw would have been worse if the people outside their bubble didn't switch channels to faux for the melt down. I know I did I wanted to see their faces - the rove meltdown was priceless. Seriously I have not ever purposely ever put faux noise on other then twice. The first time was Obama's first victory and the second time he won.
