News & Media


A Deeper look at the news and media world. We analyze news reports and media pieces as well as the people behind them. Our purpose is to inquire into the relative sanity or bias as well as "reality checking". A different kind of "fact checking" that exposes the blindness of bias and disingenuous manipulation.

MSNBC’s The Cycle with Jonathan Haidt – awesome

The Cycle, a new show on MSNBC featured a guest that deserves your attention. Jonathan Haidt is someone I have been following for 2 years now. He is a “moral psychologist”. His focus is on how we split into groups and the moral values behind the groupishness. In this video he talks about the moral values that divide the right wing / left wing politcs and why it’s wider than in the past.

Understanding the motivations behind those you oppose or agree with can insulate you from lizard brain reactivity. In other words, awareness of causes brings about a gap in which we can let our thinking brain have the reigns of our thoughts and feelings.
