      A major new study of social-media sharing patterns shows that political polarization is more common among conservatives than liberals — and that the exaggerations and falsehoods emanating from right-wing media outlets such as Breitbart News have infected mainstream discourse.

      Though the report, published by the Columbia Journalism Review, does an excellent job of laying out the challenge posed by Breitbart and its ilk, it is less than clear on how to counter it. Successfully standing up for truthful reporting in this environment “could usher in a new golden age for the Fourth Estate,” the authors write. But members of the public who care about such journalism are already flocking to news organizations like The New York Times, The Washington Post, and, locally, The Boston Globe, all of which have experienced a surge in paid subscriptions since the election of President Trump. That’s heartening, but there are no signs that it’s had any effect on the popularity or influence of the right-wing partisan media.

          Isn't the word polarization supposed to mean mainly greater distance between Cons and Libs, both moving away from each other? Just blaming one side for this is a kinda newish ting. Until the Libs can come up with something and someone great, they should keep quiet, lick their wounds, and come up with a new game plan.

              How about that; the Left burns down cars and buildings, takes up arms against the First Amendment and some 'study' concludes that the conservatives are polarized? You guys are still in denial and still very irrational.

                  Gaslighting and insulting any source that shows you for what you are, is a popular tactic with you right wingers.

                  It doesn't however change the facts, you are polarized and terrified of change.

                          Since the 1960 campaign between Nixon and Kennedy I have been intellectually involved in politics. Every four years after we battled for the WH, usually with a bit of decorum and gentlemanly politeness. Until 1972 that is, that to me was the turning point, Nixon instituted the 'dirty trick' gang, Ailes, Cheney, Rumsfield, etc. The spread of inaccurate propaganda by that bunch in my opinion lead directly to what we have today. One true example is the memo from Ailes to Nixon about the need of a direct channel to republican voters, guess what came along, 'Fox News', run by Roger Ailes.

                              Give it a rest, my friend. It is the Left that has abandoned reason and is hyperventilating every time someone says something that does not fit its narrative. The SJWs have taken over and destroyed the Democratic Party. The presstitutes and court intellectuals who depend on the usual elite pulling the strings from behind the curtain is now in a panic and is trying to blame everything on conservatives. Ironically, conservatives oppose some of the same frauds that the Left is attacking and few are willing to sit back and listen to reason.

                                      The study refers to...social media sharing. Yippee...big whoop...yawn. Of course, social media lends itself completely to polarized thought...The Grand Lefty Yabberz, with its "mission," being a PERFECT example.

                                      Now in the "real world" of the abrogation of Free Speech, demonstrations, protests, vandalism, riots, bodily injury, claiming of victimhood at every turn, and reams and reams and reams and reams of the vilest HATE SPEECH imaginable, the Dems/Libs/Lefties have the Right beat by light years!

                                          The real world to Left wing types is like calculus to English majors. There is little comprehension and little interest in understanding. These people are still trying to blame the Russians for everything.

                                                      Shock and awe always seems to work. So does the truth. maybe they need to add both together and include sources that matter? So instead of just saying Trump is an ass hole... post for instances, videos or even audio to prove he is. Has to be lots of proof out there.
