How snide algorithms and social media marketing can be

This was taken from the video of Matt Damon reading a Howard Zinn quote. I don’t think many people realize that he was reading someone elses words and were just cheering him on for who he is.

Don’t get me wrong, I’m very glad that he uses his position to bring social injustice and social challenges to our attention, but he could have also read who the quote was from. Because this way, a lot of people who don’t really know just think: oh, he’s a cool guy and he does intelligent social commentary.

Anyway, the point really is that at the end of the video, the little rider slides in from the right, which I thought was just a farce in and of itself. I did not click it although I hate corruption.
