The Decline Of Traditional Media Feeds Polarization

In a social media exchange I had this morning with the long-time assistant ND at WLUK-TV 11, Bill Kiefer, who, like me, is a former student of the late Dr. Robert L. Snyder at UW-O, Bill pointed me to an article in CJR that quantifies the idea that many of us in the news profession have had for some time – namely, the decline of “stable platforms of journalistic production”, as CJR terms it, has contributed to the intense political polarization we’re seeing today.

Well worth the few minutes it takes to read.
