The alternative reality of the noise machine

In movement conservative world, if you ever hear anything that may cause you some cognitive dissonance (i.e. something that conflicts with your ideologically determined worldview) it can be dismissed as the product of "liberal bias" and attributed to either the Clintons or George Soros. Reality be damned.
