Bridging The Divide?
August 31, 2006
I want to follow up on Cass Sunstein's post about ideological amplification. It reminds me of a study I read about a few years ago by Valdis Krebs, a network theorist, on the polarized political reading habits of Americans. (I see he's updated the study for 2006). Using the Amazon "Customers who bought this item also bought..." feature, he found that people who read Ann Coulter weren't reading much of Michael Moore, and vice versa.
