"There is no longer a singular "American Culture" to put my thoughts into words. We don't watch the same TV, we don't listen to the same music, we don't read the same news sources. Maybe we never did, but the internet is accelerating that pulling apart."

this was a temporary thing created by mass broadcast media. it wasn't like that before the 1920's and it hasn't been like that since the 2000s
