14 Mar Oklahoma City Bombing | Does Social Media Cause Political Polarization? | 5

In this interview, Lindsay discusses the warnings—and potential solutions—with Paul Barrett, co-author of the report “Fueling the Fire: How Social Media Intensifies U.S. Political Polarization – And What Can Be Done About It.”
