Reading too many comments

I’ve spent two mind-numbing weeks watching the national political conventions.

The online comments surrounding them? Fear, loathing, anger, hype, snark.

So much polarization. All mistrust and motivated reasoning. Just take a glimpse at WSJ’s Blue Feed, Red Feed for realtime examples.

“Live chat” comments on YouTube live streams of the #RNCinCLE and #DemsinPhilly conventions were undoubtedly the worst I encountered.

I need to detox.
