  • Do people really want to be in a microcosm where the facts are wrong?

  • Because, over time, wrong facts don't lead to good things.

  • If you're hearing about, "Don't use vaccines," or, you know, that "drugs have side effects that are false",

  • that's not good for you,

  • if you're not seeing the job opportunities in the right way.

  • I do think a lot of these systems are self-correcting.

  • You have these small fringe groups, say, a neo-Nazi group,

  • and they really do stay outside the mainstream.

  • But most people, I hope, still want to know the real facts

  • and so they'll engage in a more common set of understandings.

  • At least we have a system that, when people want to find things, it's easier than ever.

  • If they want to publish things, it's easier than ever.

  • The fact that is isn't just, you know, the local city newspaper guy who gets to write the stories,

  • that complex stories can be found, that you can click on the lawsuit and see all the data,

  • you can click on the study and see all the information.

  • I think the positives of modern digital communication do today, and will in the future,

  • outweigh these fragmentation challenges.

  • But the discussion about that, how do we minimize that, how far is that going to go...

  • It's super important. It's turned out to be more of a problem

  • than I or many others would have expected.
