Liberals have more gray matter in a part of the brain associated with understanding complexity, while the conservative brain is bigger in the section related to processing fear, said the study on Thursday in Current Biology.
People with a large amygdala are “more sensitive to disgust” and tend to “respond to threatening situations with more aggression than do liberals and are more sensitive to threatening facial expressions,” the study said.
Liberals are linked to larger anterior cingulate cortexes, a region that “monitor(s) uncertainty and conflicts,” it said.
This isn’t a matter of biased sites like Fox, or even stories generated through lopsided editing, as is common on Breitbart.
These are completely fictional stories that originate at sites made up to look like legitimate television or newspaper sources.

Daily Kos is not a blog. It's like ATS...a forum.
And NPR is biased, and I already admitted that. Do try to keep up.
Bias is not the same as LIES.
They just didn’t care about the actual facts?
Well, they just assumed there were no facts. It wasn’t like they investigated it. They said, “No, that can’t be, and I don’t want to hear another word about it.” It’s a very strange way of looking at the world, because my parents, as well read as they were, they read only books that were on the approved list. And it’s probably a very good lesson for all of us: You can’t just read what you already agree with. You can’t, and we shouldn’t. But it is certainly more comfortable.

Yet another thread painting yourself as intellectually superior, a martyr, and right all at once. Why debate actual points when you can just say the source is fake and dismiss it outright? Only one set of "facts" matter, and that's the one you're pushing.
This whole "fake news" thing is really a godsend for the liberals right now, isn't it?
Now if you could just do away with that pesky electoral college, eh?
