A Humorous Look At Belief System

I have previously linked to this Chris Mooney article that explained that many people refuse to accept facts that don't square with their preconceived notions.  A shorter version of the article is here.

Jon Stewart points to another reason that belief systems remain entrenched:  no one reports new facts when other more important news like the McRib dominates the news cycle.  Of course if the news embarrasses the Koch brothers, that might be another reason to bury it.
