Ok, a bit of a “harumph” here, but this piece by Jan Ting published in NJ.com reminds me of the “Filter Bubble,” argument so well described by Eli Pariser.

Clicking on links on a news website is not like reading a newspaper because there’s so much information online that only the links already of interest get clicked. That’s like political conservatives only going to Fox News for their news, or liberals relying only on MSNBC. And it may be another contributing factor to the political polarization of America, each side oblivious to the concerns of the other.
