Going around the mainstream media – surprize, suprize!

This is Kevin Roose (@kevinroose) on Twitter this morning. He makes the case that the mainstream media are being circumvented, and that, in consequence, millions of people are getting a view of reality that the MSM cannot control. This comes as news to them, it would seem. I have seldom seen so well confirmed the view that we are all in information bubbles.

My liberation began when I got rid of cable television, with its state-approved sources of “news” and its minute number of approved filtering agents for the much wider assortment of filtering agents, whom I choose.

The following is Kevin Roose of the New York Times, reporting to a CNN panel his surpise at “discovering” the parallel universe of FaceBook.

“Didn’t have time to list it, but I pulled some data for this segment:

August FB interactions CNN: 21 million NYT: 8M Ben Shapiro: 55M

August FB video views CNN: 73M NYT: 12M The Hodgetwins: 84M

August FB shares: CNN: 2.2M NYT: 800K Dan Bongino: 5.6M”

 

I had onlhy become aware of the cheerfully moronic Hodgetwins last week, and Dan Bongino is as yet unknown to me. But I will look them up, fast.
