Actually — I’d argue the opposite, far from being unexposed to an alternative point of view — the only facts “from the other side” that permeate our media bubble are one so egregious that they enrage us.

It is in Twitter and Facebooks interests to provide us with content that annoys us, that makes us angry because angry people click.

This has led to further divide both sides of the political divide as only the most insane and sensational stories about “the other side” make it through.

We have created a world where the biggest internet companies in the world are paid by how much they algorithmicaly annoy us… and we wonder why people are angry and annoyed all of the time?

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
