While people on the left and right can turn beet-red with anger on TV shows such as ABC's "This Week," CNN's "Crossfire" or Fox's "Hannity & Colmes," the Internet provides innumerable forums and political sites so anyone can fire off a torrent of rhetorical brickbats. The Web is the birthplace of "flamers" and "trolls," people who launch no-holds-barred attacks on others with opposing views.
And from NewsMax to Salon to the Guerrilla News Network, you can find political news served up online to your partisan tastes. But despite the rise of so much partisan noise, it's hard to say without a doubt that we're living in the most divisive time, or that the Net is to blame. Research in the area is relatively sketchy, and the Net still provides a vast galaxy of diverse opinions and objective journalism.
Some conspiracies are more interesting than others.

What happened with the mad cow scare and alleged cover up?
Or, SARS or the flu epidemic to name just a few?
I can find old threads on these issues but it seems no one else is interested anymore.
So I guess my question is are we media slaves like the “sheeples” I have heard referred to so often?
