Pollster: What the reaction to the Covington kids really says about the US

From Scott Rasmussen at Townhall:

Seventy-four percent of liberal voters believe that the Covington High School students behaved inappropriately during that encounter. However, a ScottRasmussen.com national survey found that just 31 percent of conservative voters agree…

And, perhaps even more importantly, nobody changed their mind as new facts emerged. More.

Reality check: It’s easier to explain than Rasmussen supposes. The conservatives knew that the media would misrepresent the story in order to tell the liberals what they wanted to hear and needed to believe. So did the liberals. It’s called The Narrative. Facts that do not support the narrative are WrongThink. There, that clears things up, doesn’t it?
