Is the information revolution polarising western society?
It seems to me that as the young and the computer savvy get more and more information online, the mainstream media (commercial TV Newspapers) are becoming progressively more conservative and facile in their coverage of world events. I assume they consider a balanced point of view is no longer necessary. Perhaps progressive thinkers should make a point of watching conservative leaning news channels. They might be more balanced if they think their audience would like it.
