I agree entirely about not being “required” to give all viewpoints equal credibility/coverage.

Makes a lot of sense and I think we’re on the same page with situations where a media company is claiming impartiality and then isn’t actually being impartial. For example, if Facebook claims that its Trends are neutral on the liberal-conservative scale, and then it turns out that they’re putting a finger on the scale in favor of the liberal side, then that’s bad. That’s a lie and it should be bad for business. It’s also bad for people to be getting all their information from sources that are blatantly biased, but at least that way they can be aware of it. Unfortunately, there isn’t much we can do to force people to take in different points of view, even if we could force media companies to give them.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

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