The problem with both MSNBC and FOX is they pander to one perspective and feed people's opinion so that the extremist elements in our society start to become the norm. Our country has become more and more divided and unwilling to work with each other. Both sides are now just terrified or alienating their base, I believe repubs more so then dems at the moment but you see it on both sides.
If your primary source of news are either of those channels or any of the radio broadcasts for either side, you are tainting yourself. You are making yourself incapable of hearing anything from the other side and it makes you infinitely less likely to compromise to come to a solution.
After all, hearing secession talk after an election shouldn't be normal should it? That's extremist thinking, not normal thinking. These "news" outlets are destroying our democracy.
