“I just choose to not listen”: why Trump supporters are tuning out the scandals - Vox

Who of us wants to listen to stuff that contradicts our fixed notions
This is Vox's take.
Yesterday's New York Times also had an article about how Trump supporters are getting little information -- if they stick to their favourite news sites and news channels -- about the whole Russia / Comey "things".
Mind: both sides are guilty here.  Cognitive dissonance and confirmation bias appear to be ingrained in homo sapiens... (ie, homo not so sapiens).  For various good evolutionary reasons.
