So, how'd everyone enjoy their forced blog vacation? I spent mine reading:

RAND corp invents meme Truth Decay (insert eye roll emoji here), writes 300+ pages, cites Dan and mentions CCP:

One of my comments that's still floating in the ethernet.

This is pretty interesting:

https://kf-site-production.s3.amazonaws.com/publications/pdfs/000/000/242/original/KnightFoundation_AmericansViews_Client_Report_010917_Final_Updated.pdf

More specifically, stuff I found interesting:

Racial and age differences (blacks, older people more likely to be less concerned about media bias).
People who identify towards the political extremes are more likely to think they can find trustworthy media
Pubz more likely to think Fox is objective compared to Dems rating any outlet as objective.
People who identify towards the political extremes are more likely to think they can sort out facts.
Pubz more likely to think that errors because of failing to check facts = "fake news" (seems that Demz and Pubz define "fake news" differently).
Pubz more likely to think that accurate news that portrays politicians in a bad light = "fake news"

Not to be outdone by RAND and Truth Decay, I invented a meme: de-Pravda. I think I won that one.

As for Dan and his millennials obsession: I think this effect is due to opinion shift - or rather, as they age, people tend to have more politically consistent beliefs. And zoos are for (non-allergic) kids.
