Conspiracy theories greatest threat to democracy
Not only online social media - I believe conservative talk radio first went in that direction, followed by entertainment news...
To a lot of people who listen or watch daily, those forms of media shape their view of the world today.
I maintain that the entire media environment needs a major legal overhaul. We need to break up all the media monopolies, be they print, broadcast, or social. And the licensing agreements need to require them to adhere to basic journalistic standards of accuracy and fairness.
