Dr. Kate Edenbourg and Eli Darnell discuss the changes in journalism today.

As older print media is being replaced with news on the internet and social media, journalists have been forced to change alongside new innovations in communication technology. As the internet becomes more inseparable from everyday life, we become accustomed to living with it. The internet helps us save time and expand our reach, but it has also led to increased isolation, divisiveness, and the spread of misinformation. Have these changes been more helpful or harmful? Are Americans becoming more divided? What role has social media play in this? Are personalized news feeds spurring more radicalization and echo chambers? We have access to more information than ever before, why then doesn't this create a more informed citizenry? Is social media making it harder to avoid misinformation? What role should regulators play in regulating social media companies? These are some of the questions we will consider in this discussion.
