Sharon Begley at Newsweek doesn’t blame FOX news for the right wing backlash against health-care reform. She blames the American people. A research study shows that people’s convictions are more based in our groundless suspicions than in factual evidence.

For their study, the scientists whittled down surveys filled out by 246 voters, of whom 73 percent believed in a Saddam-9/11 link, to 49 believers who were willing to be interviewed at length in October 2004. Even after the 49 were shown newspaper articles reporting that the 9/11 Commission had not found any evidence linking Saddam and 9/11, and quoting President Bush himself denying it, 48 stuck to their guns: yup, Saddam Hussein, directly or indirectly, brought down the Twin Towers.
