Got a comment from a guy the other day on AddictingInfo.com. He told me about an argument he had with a relative (a Faux "news" freak) about a blatant lie Fox told. Even when the commenter had obvious evidence that it was a lie, the relative....wait for it....CHOSE to believe the lie ANYWAY.

Faith-based thinking 101. If the evidence runs contrary to your dogma, you just reject the evidence as a MATTER OF FAITH.

Jeff, research has shown that showing contrary evidence to an ideologue just makes their belief even stronger. It's human nature, apparently, but it makes combating lies very, very difficult.
