Sarah Palin is joining Fox News.
Cue the cheers from her fans and loyalists who will get her fresh and mavericky take on world events and politics.
Cue the jeers from her detractors, who are already writing punchlines that reinforce their existing opinions.
Years ago, one could read an analysis from the left and one from the right, and somewhere in the middle there would be an intersection from which one could reconstruct an objective truth. But that doesn’t happen anymore. The circles have split, and those in the left bubble can’t even fathom the cognitions of those in the right bubble (and thus conclude those in the right bubble are incapable of anything approaching reason and cognition.)
We’re now seeing the consequences of feeding your brain with only one side – selecting and never leaving your ever-deafening echo chamber: ultimately, you surround yourself with more noise, and get no closer to objective truth.
