Summary: Open Society Foundations (opensocietyfoundations.org) takes a detailed look at the way the publication formerly run by Trump strategic advisor Steve Bannon has affected how the right-wing media works.

Relevance: Learn how the media is changing.
Action: Cross reference what you read on social media and partisan sites with mass media sites.
