Conversely, when people don't want to believe something horrible might actually be true they do just the opposite. They call people who have done the research on the Internet "conspiracy theorist" then they refuse to spend the five minutes necessary to see if the person they are slandering might actually be correct. Instead, the uninformed just drink the television network Cool-aid even though just about everyone these days knows the networks are totally corrupt.
I suppose old habits are hard to break. It took me a while too to break free from the networks and national newspapers. But once you take a logical look and examine all the facts you will be shocked but at least you will be informed. Sadly, most still quote network disinformation as Gospel fact. As a result we will all be suffering very soon from this persistent collective ignorance.
