We read NY Times stories every day, except we often don’t realize it because they are reprints in local newspapers. We read Politico all day long, except we don’t realize it because it appears under a Yahoo or other news banner. We have no choice but to listen to CBS and other mainstream media, because our local news stations use their news feeds. We live in a world of a social agenda entertainment industry.
And yes, we watch MSNBC, just look at the Twitter feeds of conservatives and you will understand that we hang on almost every Chris Matthews rant.
The notion of a cocoon unique to conservatives is nonsense, and without any evidence.
What about all the liberals who refuse to watch Fox News, and Media Matters which is organized for the very purpose of destroying Fox News. For every example of a conservative cocoon I could give you 10 examples of liberal cocoons.
