What other distortion do you think that echo chamber might have wrought?

Daily Whim: .. This is one of the more welcome realizations I’ve seen, even if it’s about six months too late:

“But I, like most of us, fell for the echo chamber. Daily Kos, MyDD, Steve Soto, Pandagon, and all the other blogs are run by good people with positive intentions, but if they’re you’re primary source for information, you’re outlook is perverted by an overwhelming amount of good news and a general disdain for the factual accuracy of bad news. It perverts your perspective and, because the sample group is so totally different than most of America, it begins to twist your political predictions and assumptions of what works.”
Ezra Klein

The blog echo chamber (the right one or the left one) perverted your perspective of reality? No! Really? Whooda-thunkit?

What other distortion do you think that echo chamber might have wrought? The idea that your neighbor is your enemy, and Osama is just some guy trying to horn in on our war?

Naaaaah.
