    terribly sympathetic toward them either.  I actually don't think that the argument that they're victims because they were lied to is a valid one, as most of these people had access to other sources of information than just Fox.  There is no excuse for a lack of intellectual curiosity.

      in the traditional media were complicit in their silence, not calling out the GOP on their bullshit. Remember how surprised many of us were when, in the second debate, Candy Crowley actually called out Romney on his lies about Obama's reaction to Benghazi?

      Far too often, the traditional media tries to be so "balanced" that if they had someone on talking about how blue the sky is, they'd feel obligated to bring on someone else to say it's really purple with pink polka dots.

      They've embraced delusions of all sorts and never acknowledged gross errors of the past.  It is THEY who must decide to break out of their delusions.

        They were systematically played for fools by the fox they love so much.

        So, what will they do with this new information? Some might wake up a bit. Most, however, will just double down and buy more ammo.
