Across the Aisle VII: Social media & C-Span

Social media

“Social media has given rise to the ability of individuals to say anything they want to say irrespective of what the facts are. People make things up. I finally just told my staff, ‘Don’t ever show me another blog. I don’t care if they say something good or bad about me,’” Republican Saxby Chambliss said.

“C-Span gives America the opportunity to hear from members of Congress across the country, and that’s good … but it gives the opportunity for partisan politicians to be partisan to the whole country. It certainly contributes to the House being as partisan as it is.”

– Chris Schroder, The 100 Companies
