All the News that Fits… What You’re Already Thinking…

Hosted by

Increased partisanship in politics is no accident.  The far Left and the far Right live in different worlds when it comes to news and information. Intense conservatives trust Fox News -- not MSNBC, the New York Times or NPR.  For intense liberals, it’s the other way around.  And social media deliver more and more news -- using algorithms based on what consumers have already indicated they “like.” Are political echo chambers creating opinion bubbles that kill public discourse?
