Social media has corrupted the truth, spawned fake news and contributed to the collapse of polite political norms – right or wrong?

A systematic, in-depth study of American news media before and after Trump takes a deeper plunge into the right-wing ecosystem at large, with surprising findings. Yochai Benkler of Harvard University, co-author of Network Propaganda: Manipulation, Disinformation, and Radicalization in American Politics explains.

This episode is made possible by the Israel office of Konrad-Adenauer-Stiftung, which promotes peace, freedom, and justice through political education.

    to quote a liberal friend, this podcast one sided utter rubbish.
    I heard right wing militia , Donald Trump, Fox News etc as the Propaganda that has poisoned our media. No mention of Antifa and BLM who have burned down our cities and attacked all opposition with violence, to the silence if not support of the MSM. The sad reality this study alone with the MSM and the Tech world are biased and corrupt. Suppression of any stories that did not paint Trump evil. Suppression of corruption in the Biden Family. We are now approaching a new era of emboldened Left Totalitarians. They openly talk of truth comissions to expose Trump supporters, weapon confiscation, wealth distribution and the rest of the Socialist Agenda. it would have been more interesting if you included an analysis of BLM ,Justice Democrats etc
    as well.
