Do Social Media Platforms Present a Biased View of America?

As the nation just celebrated its 245th birthday, the first in a series of I&I/TIPP polls finds that 68% of adults say they are “very” or “extremely” proud to be an American, with another 15% “moderately” proud. Do you think Twitter and other social media platforms convey a biased view of America?

Nikole Hannah-Jones, creator of the infamous 1619 Project, announced she was moving to Howard University after the University of North Carolina questioned her credentials. Numerous scholars found problems with the 1619 Project. As the nation just celebrated its 245th birthday, the first in a series of I&I/TIPP polls finds that 68% of adults say they are “very” or “extremely” proud to be an American, with another 15% “moderately” proud. Even among blacks and Hispanics, who are repeatedly described as victims of embedded American racism and intolerance, pride is strong. The poll found that 55% of blacks and 57% of Hispanics say they are either extremely or very proud to be Americans. Just 7% of blacks and 9% of Hispanics say they aren’t proud at all of their nationality. Given these facts, why does the media, including people like Nikole Hannah-Jones, keep presenting us with stories and imagery that suggest otherwise? Do you think Twitter and other social media platforms convey a biased view of America?
