Speak Your Piece: In a Desert, Any Oasis Will Do
Rural “news deserts” are anything but arid. But the steady stream of information that flows into rural America isn't the kind that waters the roots of democracy.
Cutting edge communication technologies have brought with them the precision of seeking out the conservatively curious and the politically disinclined to push them toward common political purpose. Facebook, Google, YouTube, Twitter, and – most of where you go online to express yourself – have you targeted. You are the change they seek. They take what you like and what you hate and prank with you. (Sources say.)"
