“In this Wolff Responds, Prof Wolff comments on changes in American mainstream media, comparing the small margin for diversity of opinion when he was younger, to the much wider range of perspectives available today. Specifically, he talks about the fact that CNN overtook FOX news in terms of audience size and compares the media in the US to that of France, and how the internet has opened the door for people to both produce and find news online. All in all, he welcomes the diversity of opinions, and encourages us to make use of it to challenge and strengthen our own opinions.”
It gives voice to why I strive to bring different [sometimes conflicting] viewpoints to this blog.
