Su un ingiustificato senso di superiorità

NON DOVREMMO DIMENTICARE che il concetto di bolla informativa non va a senso unico. Mai. Altrimenti siamo condannati a rivivere la stessa storia.

Money quote: “The U.S. presidential election, as I’ve argued, was something of a similar case. No, the polls didn’t show a toss-up, as they had in Brexit. But the reporting was much more certain of Clinton’s chances than it should have been based on the polls. Much of The New York Times’s coverage, for instance, implied that Clinton’s odds were close to 100 percent. In an article on Oct. 17 — more than three weeks before Election Day — they portrayed the race as being effectively over, the only question being whether Clinton should seek a landslide or instead assist down-ballot Democrats”
