    my advice is to keep fighting.  I had an epic debate at work one day with a colleague.  Me a shiny new liberal, him very bright, but a dedicated to fox news type.  We debated for 4-5 hours straight.  People would come and go, making a small contribution but we kept at it.  I think finally a desire for lunch finally broke us up.

    Did it do any good?  I think maybe.  I certainly didn't change any of his "fox news talking points" views that day, but I suspect his mind was opened slightly to different points of view. I'm hoping that he will start factoring in other sources of information and maybe in time his views will shift.  We can only hope.
