What happens when you normalize the abnormal

Ethan Zuckerman

D&S advisor Ethan Zuckerman wrote an op-ed detailing the issue of normalizing the abnormal.

My deep fear is that there’s no single set of Hallin’s spheres anymore. What’s consensus to a Trump supporter may be deviant to a Clinton supporter and vice versa. We now face an online media landscape so diverse and fragmented that each of us finds big enough spheres of legitimate controversy that we think we’re seeing a real debate at work.
