Intelligence Squared Debate Series

Does the internet poison politics? It's been argued that the rise of 'personalization,' the use of algorithms to filter what you see online, and easy access to the like-minded, have served to reinforce our pre-conceptions.

Is the information bubble a myth, or is it undermining civic discourse? Is the rise of social media really broadening our world views, or narrowing them? The debaters are Eli Pariser, Siva Vaidhyanathan, Evgeny Morozov, and Jacob Weisberg.

Airing this Sunday, April 29. You can hear The Listening Room Sunday nights at 9:00 p.m., on WWNO, 89.9 FM.
