Truer Words Were Never Spoken …

… and a sizable majority gets it:

Fifty-seven percent of Americans say social media does more to divide the nation than unite it.

According to the poll, 57 percent of Americans say they agree with the statement that social media sites like Facebook and Twitter do more to divide the country, while 35 percent think they do more to bring the nation together.

Fifty-five percent believe social media does more to spread lies and falsehoods, versus 31 percent who say it does more to spread news and information.

Sixty-one percent think social media does more to spread unfair attacks and rumors against public figures and corporations, compared with 32 percent who say it does more to hold those public figures and corporations accountable.

And a whopping 82 percent say social media sites do more to waste people’s time, versus 15 percent who say they do more to use Americans’ time well.

Mark Zuckerberg’s de facto calls for suppressing speech and both platforms’ clear double standards in suppressing conservative speech will only cause these majorities to grow.
