Week Six

This week was pretty interesting. One of our assigned readings was The Making of a Youtube Radical by Kevin Roose which I really enjoyed. The article was about Caleb Cain who discovered the alt-right in 2014. It all started when he watched a self-help video by Stefan Molyneux. Even though Cain and Molyneux had opposing political stances Cain still was intrigued by his videos. Between 2015 and 2016 Cain looked at his Youtube recommended more and discovered a whole world of right-wing creators/ content.
