People choose their own facts, not the facts

People choose the facts they want now. They do not seek balance or center, or even truth. They choose what they want to believe and what they want to listen to, and what they want to reinforce. We are divided, polarized, and we want to to win for our side, as if this were some sporting event and the stakes were simply winning and not the lives, health, and future of others who are not as fortunate as we are.    -Drawn from dialogue in "Newsroom" on HBO
