This is so interesting, I had to reshare it.

h/t to Yonatan Zunger, do check out his post for some additional insights.

Trust Levels of News Sources by Ideological Group. Fascinating!

Help me ensure I understood this right.  Consistently Liberal and Mostly Liberal people tend to trust a lot more variety of sources across the entire spectrum. 28 and 24 respectively. 

Consistently Conservative and Mostly Conservative people tend to trust a lot fewer sources of news. 8 (omg!) and 12 respectively.  The lack of diversity of information sources might explain the existence of more (but not all) closed minds in such groups and more dug into their own points of view.

Is this an unreasonable understanding of this data set?

Additionally, the sources Consistently and Mostly Conservative people do trust, are less trusted by the other three groups of people! Fox News, Breitbart, Drudge Report, Sean Hannity, Glenn Beck, Rush Limbaugh.

This explains why America is becoming more and more polarized.

Is this a reasonable understanding of this data set?

One bizarre data point: Everyone distrusts BuzzFeed more than they trust it!!  And yet, as we know from competitive intelligence analysis, everyone is still reading BuzzFeed. :)

This quick plot depicts data from a YouGov poll related to the recently released Jurassic World movie. Respondents were asked "Do you believe that dinosaurs and humans once lived on the planet at the same time?" 41% of the respondents said either "definitely" or "probably," which pretty much sums up the state of the American education system. At least only 31% of respondents Age 18-29 had the same affirmative responses. #Facepalm
