Human beings have a strong dramatic instinct toward binary thinking, a basic urge to divide things into two distinct groups, with nothing but an empty gap in between. We love to dichotomize. Good versus bad. Heroes versus villains. My country versus the rest. Dividing the world into two distinct sides is simple and intuitive, and also dramatic because it implies conflict, and we do it without thinking, all the time.

The image of a dangerous world has never been broadcast more effectively than it is now, while the world has never been less violent and safer.

Forming your worldview by relying on the media would be like forming your view of me by looking only at a picture of my foot.
