What If There’s A Better Way To Handle Our Democratic Debate?

by James Fishkin, Larry Diamondvia The New York Times
Thursday, August 29, 2019

Our presidential race is a poll-driven battle of teams managing superficial impressions. The public’s responses to horse race polls are based on little more than vague ideas of what the candidates are saying.

Wednesday, August 28, 2019

According to Gabbard, this move on behalf of Google constitutes “election interference.” Gabbard further went on to say that her lawsuit would underscore the extensive power of Big Tech, and shed light on its violation of free speech. Gabbard’s gripes are very reminiscent of the feelings many conservatives also have towards Big Tech.
