The way we consume news Affected by Filter Bubble.


From TV to radio to online media, it’s easier than ever to limit the sources we get news from in 2017. As we choose news sources that cater to our own beliefs, we’re effectively creating an echo chamber in our own homes filled with the news we want to hear — a concept that Upworthy co-founder Eli Pariser called the Filter Bubble.

This problem has become more acute with constant talk of everything from political tweets to “fake news.” But at Upworthy, we believe it’s more important than ever to recognize the effect this has and how we can find ways to break those bubbles and find our common ground.

Eli was interviewed on “The Today Show” about the increasingly polarized media culture in our country and what it means for all of us. Check it out below and let us know your thoughts in the comments.
