Social Media and The Rise of The Far Right

Press/Media: Press / Media

Description

Historically, far right political groups had limited access to digital communications as a consequence of how our media platforms are constructed. There are certainly valid arguments made about whether including extremists such as neo-Nazis and white supremacists on talk shows and news slots is conducive to a good society, and is in the public’s interest. The media has acted as a sieve in this regard whereby radicals are halted at the point of public messaging.
