How do we ensure that we are all informed so that history does not repeat itself in the 2020 election? We can start by having cross-generational discussions about the future of media and politics. I decided to explore this question through a cross-generational lens with former Senior CIA Analyst and fellow MediaVillage columnist Kent Harrington. Unlike previous generations, Gen Z was raised on the internet and is responsible for the majority of internet traffic, social media content and culture trends in America. Yet politicians and news outlets have not made a substantial effort to speak directly to us. “People are talking to each other, but not across generational lines,” Harrington says.
