Anytime a Democrat has a plan to ‘fix’ anything, it always involves the government. Mainly because Democrats think people are too stupid to think and do for themselves. To be fair in this case, where Andrew Yang is talking about fixing the media, they may indeed be too stupid to think and do for THEMselves.
Still, government always seems to make things worse.
There are 3 problems with our media that are fueling polarization: 1. The closing of 2,000 local papers, which are typically not very partisan; 2. Cable news maximizing audience share by adopting political stances (Fox); and 3. Social media’s supercharging of conspiracy theories.
