    On June 14, 2016, Jared Yates Sexton reported from a Donald Trump rally in Greensboro, North Carolina. Following a series of tweets that saw his observations viewed well over a million times, his reporting was soon featured in The Washington Post, NPR, Bloomberg, and Mother Jones, and the New York Times. His latest is a firsthand account of the events that shaped the 2016 Presidential Election and the cultural forces that enabled it. Featuring in-the-field reports and deep analysis, Sexton’s book is also a sobering chronicle of our democracy’s political polarization—a result of our self-constructed, technologically-assisted echo chambers.
