Too Long; Didn't Read

The Markup looked at what news Americans were seeing about the Capitol riot on Facebook a year ago.

While the topics of debate on Facebook are slightly different than they were a. year ago, some topics of discussion have dominated the national discussion as of late—COVID-19 vaccines, for one, have dominated national discussion. Meanwhile, those who self-identified as Trump voters in our panel were more likely to be shown any of a number of culture-war stories from a conservative news outlet.
