Liberals vs. Conservatives Poll

According to a new poll conducted in these disUnited States -- the entertainment preferences of liberals and conservatives are "as polarized as our political views." Shocking, I know.

The Norman Lear Center/Zogby poll:

* Liberals were much more likely than conservatives to listen to commentary and entertainment with which they disagreed philosophically.
* Fox News wins the prize for the most politically divisive TV channel (70% of conservatives watch it daily and only 3% of liberals).
* Over 82% of conservatives say they never watch MTV.
* Cerebral material like documentaries and arts and educational programming all appeal more to liberals... Conservative viewers are more likely to watch action-adventure, sports, and business programming.
* Conservatives are the least likely group to listen to jazz and reggae... Liberals, on the other hand, are more likely than other respondents to enjoy almost every music genre.
