12. I would bet that also...

I know a lot of Fox only viewers and only a couple are nasty, deplorable people. But they see the world through the Fox prism.

Many are college educated, but know very little outside of their immediate world. Most know more about sports than what is going on.

One of my coworkers is very nice but is also super 2nd amendment, hated Obama, voted for Trump, and constantly says snarky stuff about “the government”.

So, horrible person right?

Not so much.

He’s actually one of my favorites. He’s just convinced of a lot of things that just aren’t true.

In a strange way this gives me hope. We’re really not that far apart.

There are some horrible people out there. But fewer than you might think. They’re ignorant because Fox, the Republicans, and other bad actors are actively lying to them.

How to deal with that is the issue of our day. But that’s another topic entirely.
