Social Media Isn't Quite the Poltical "Echo Chamber" Predicted

http://www.nytimes.com/2015/05/08/technology/facebook-study-disputes-theory-of-political-polarization-among-users.html

On average, about 23 percent of users’ friends are of an opposing political affiliation, according to the study. An average of almost 29 percent of the news stories displayed by Facebook’s News Feed also appear to present views that conflict with the user’s own ideology.

In addition, researchers found individuals’ choices about which stories to click on had a larger effect than Facebook’s filtering mechanism in determining whether people encountered news that conflicted with their professed ideology.

Been a boon to NSA types with all the personal information many let out on there.

President/s have claimed they were elected by the "Silent Majority."

Just give 'em a little time and maturity. I don't usually agree with Dana Milbank, but here he gets my two thumbs up.

America

Up until the mid-1980s, the typical American held the view that partisans on the other side operated with good intentions. But that has changed in dramatic fashion, as a study published last year by Stanford and Princeton researchers demonstrates.


It has long been agreed that race is the deepest divide in American society. But that is no longer true, say Shanto Iyengar and Sean Westwood, the academics who led the study. Using a variety of social science methods (for example, having study participants review résumés of people that make both their race and party affiliation clear), they document that “the level of partisan animus in the American public exceeds racial hostility.”



for Elchivito...

He mentions Alan Grayson. If there is a definition of LWNJ, his characteristics are all one needs to see. Dana Milbank says so.

edit: If you aren't the one searching for such a definition, my sincere apologies.
