T.J. O’Hara is joined by author and attorney Jeff Rasley.

Jeff performed a small Facebook experiment concerning civility. The two discuss this experiment, the post-election conversations that take place on social media, “silos of the like-minded,” and more.

“If you just depend on the hearsay of social media, you’re not going to get an objectively accurate picture of what’s happening.”

Jeff Rasley is the author of ten books and numerous articles. His most recent book is “POLARIZED! The Case for Civility in the Time of Trump: An experiment in civil discourse on Facebook.” He graduated from University of Chicago, and received his JD at Indiana University Law School.
