Description
 
Digital Disconnect trains its sights on the relationship between the internet
and democracy in the age of fake news, filter bubbles, and Facebook security
breaches. Moving from the development of the internet as a publicly funded
project in the late 1960s to its full-scale commercialization today, renowned
media scholar Robert McChesney traces how the democratizing potential of the
internet has been radically compromised by the logic of capitalism and the
unaccountable power of a handful of telecom and tech monopolies.
