A caricature of communication

»Nuan­ce and truth are casu­al­ties in this com­pe­ti­ti­on to gain the appro­val of the audi­ence. Grand­stan­ders scru­ti­ni­ze every word spo­ken by their opponents—and some­ti­mes even their friends—for the poten­ti­al to evo­ke public outra­ge. Con­text col­lap­ses. The speaker’s intent is ignored.«
