Where the U.S. gets its oil from | Randal S. Olson:
We now produce 60% of our own oil. Of the 40% we import, over half of it comes from the Western Hemisphere, the bulk from Canada.
Thanks to the magic of media bias, Americans believe that most of what we import comes from Saudi Arabia.
The media doesn't care very much about Americans complete lack of understanding of this CURRENT statistic, but they are VERY concerned that ONLY 63% "believe" that Global Warming is happening, and "only" 51% are significantly worried about it http://environment.yale.edu/climate-communication/article/Climate-Beliefs-November-2013
We have a media very concerned about getting a large majority to buy into a narrative that they see as important, while being completely fine with a large majority of Americans being being totally clueless on current facts.
I see this as a large problem for a people that we assume want to be self-governing. The majority political party, the media, and the American education system have a completely different view.
