    What I find most disturbing is that while there are items in both the bottom-left and bottom-right corners, I've never HEARD of the ones in the bottom-left (except for Occupy Democrats), while the majority of those in the bottom right are routinely mentioned in the media (Breitbart, Infowars, The Blaze, Red State, Newsmax, and The Daily Caller).

    What's the one just above "Occupy Democrats?" The color scheme makes it hard to read. Something-report.
    Thanks from Amelia

    Yeah that is hard to read but I do know the Palmer Report

    Super liberal bias.

    No. You're supposed to use it to spur discussion and offer your assessment, opinion, or suggest where you differ from what is presented.

    I know all about that.

    That's why people should generally stick to getting their info from the top of the chart instead of the bottom.

    Not Daily Kos/Palmer Report/Occupy Democrats and not from Breitbart/Infowars/The Federalist.

    Like for example, just taking some chart at face value despite having no idea what their methodology was.

    I believe it was done by a patent lawyer.

    I mean, the chart is pretty self-explanatory. Again, really not that hard to spot a bias.
