When SiriusXM offered me two weeks of free satellite radio in our car to entice me back into its fold, I took the opportunity to listen to Fox News for the first time in my life, hoping to better understand what a conservative viewpoint sounded like.

During commercials, I flipped over to MSNBC, then back to Fox. Toggling back and forth that way for a couple of days of the 24-hour news cycle, I learned something amazing: there are, in fact, multiple universes; at least two of them here in the U.S. They exist side by side in our current political space; universes where reality is different, laws are different, even facts aren’t the same. Einstein was right: relativity is real. Reality is actually a pigment of our imaginations. Blue or red.
