My dad was in local politics when I was a kid. He was continually in a bad mood about the local paper misquoting him. It seems like every time I'm connected to a news story in a way the general public isn't, I see how wrong the news gets it, yet I generally believe them when they write about things I'm unconnected to. Go figure.

You ain't the only one, my friend. I read a story, and I believe it ... even knowing how wrong stories about myself have been.

Cognitive dissonance.
