Summary
Does the Internet poison politics and civic engagement? Some argue that the proliferation of online sites, blogs, and web-based outlets has expanded consumers' access to a wide range of information, but others contend that despite this, most people tend to rely on narrow, one-sided sources that reinforce rather than challenge their political views. And some sites, they add, have an extreme or mean-spirited edge to them. Is the rise of the Internet improving political discourse or closing our minds?
