"The media are not paid to tell the truth. They are not paid by the fact, they are paid by the click. The most clicks come from viral traffic, which means the stories get shared on Facebook, within echo chambers whose human members signal their virtue by sharing articles."
this is not those bad people on the other side sharing articles, this is the good people who agree with you sharing articles reaffirming the things you agree on because you are good people.
