This may sound silly, but people tend to find what they are looking for. The important corollary here is that when you’re looking for something you ignore what you’re not looking for. Of course it is important to be able to differentiate between the two, but that’s not where I’m going with this.
A significant part of what passes for news today is poll results, but they are not news and I believe they are mostly fundamentally dishonest. Years ago there were only a few polling organizations conducting infrequent polls. The questions asked were carefully worded to avoid influencing the subject. The results had some validity.
Today numerous polling organizations conduct polls almost every day, but they all seem to have a political objective. The questions now are worded in such a way as to steer the subject toward a desired result. The pollster finds what he or she was looking for. The results are meaningless, and certainly not news, yet the so-called news media focuses a great deal of their attention on them. Although they loudly deny it, the news media has a leftist agenda which they promote at every opportunity. They use bogus poll results to try to convince the majority of Americans that they are out of step with the rest of the country. Do not be deceived. Morality has not gone out of vogue. The lunatics have not yet taken over the asylum.
