Across the Aisle VII: Social Media & C-Span

by Jan Schroder

“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.”
