Hopefully someday they will all come to SavvyRoo for less rhetoric and more facts and many, many sources. Until then these two groups will continue to diverge with nearly half of those on the right getting their news from a single source and the left finding more diversity (this means you, #tcot, #dems, #teaparty). But other than local TV (5% each), never do these two groups meet.

What?! Fifty percent of liberals go to NPR, CNN, The New York Times, and MSNBC for their news, but 47 percent of conservatives go only to Fox News? I'm shocked. SHOCKED! Surely, it must be because conservatives are more narrow-minded. What else could explain it?

Well, a potential counter explanation is that the media has a generally liberal bias. If this is the case, then it might be that Fox news is one of the few, if not only, media source that does not posses that liberal bias. If all this is true then conservatives might mainly watch Fox News because they see it as a bastion of objectivity in media dominated by liberal bias. Also, the data is skewed by the category because it is talking about people with consistent political ideologies (meaning that it is likely that the people on both sides are more narrow-minded than more politically moderate individuals.

So what's in the "Other" category (for each). Is there any convergence in "Other" (meaning public servant "insider" sources like the Congressional Record, NIST, DIA, NSA & National/Regional Security Briefings?). There seems to be a huge segment of "market share" that hasn't yet been claimed by conventional media. Looks like terrestrial radio is STILL in the mix as well.
