Media Bubble

There are two media bubbles in this country. The left wing media bubble and the right wing media bubble. This bubble is where partisans go to get their “news.” What they are getting is a talk show host’s opinion, not facts from both sides of an issue. The talk show hosts do a masterful job of slanting and obfuscating the truth without technically lying with the words they say. The media outlets exist to make money and push an agenda. What they are broadcasting is not “news.” Both bubbles are dangerous. Partisans slowly turn away from “traditional” news and settle into the left wing or right wing media bubble. Inside the bubble, people feel safe. They agree with everything being said and they are entertained by the talk show host’s ability to demonize their opponents in a comical way. After awhile, a person is bombarded with one side of the story and never hear anything from the other side of the story.

Let me focus on what is happening in the right wing bubble in 2023. “The DOJ is corrupt.” This is being pushed in the right wing bubble right now. Remember, people in the bubble only hear, “the DOJ is corrupt.” The reason more and more people support Donald Trump with every indictment is because to them it’s further evidence that the DOJ is corrupt not that the former president may have committed a crime.

Now let’s look at the left wing bubble. In 2020 and 2021 the media in the left wing media bubble implied or even said outright, “the police and the agencies they work for are corrupt and unnecessarily violent.” Remember, the people in the bubble only hear “the police and the agencies they work for are corrupt and unnecessarily violent.” This lead to a concerted effort to defund the police. The “defund the police” movement failed because the truth won out. The truth is, the vast majority of all police are hard working men and women who literally put their lives on the line with every shift they work. They want to do a good job enforcing laws and protecting the public as opposed to the image of police portrayed in the left wing media bubble.

Americans need to break out of their social and political comfort zones. It’s uncomfortable and generally hard to do, but it’s vital. Shouting matches don’t solve problems, conversations do.

Talks over guests

I used to love Jon Stewart. I just listened to the most recent podcast with Kate Shaw and Melissa Murray and I just wanted to tell him to shut up and listen to these intelligent women rather than rudely interrupt and talk over them.
