Exactly. Pretending that Facebook is the root of American political pathologies is the new "Blame Russia": just an obvious scapegoat to distract attention from the rotted institutions of power, beginning with US media corporations, that are doing the real damage.
Cable news creates more polarization than Facebook. The prestige media set the agenda more than Facebook. Hollywood, fashion and advertising create more body image issues than Facebook. It’s just that Facebook makes more money.

I thought virtually nobody is paying attention to US media? How could it be influencing the masses?

There's a lot more to corporate media than MSNBC & CNN, whose audiences are disappearing. There are also these things called NBC News, the NYT, the WPost, and digital media. Have you heard of those? But even with cable, the issue is *who* is watching (influencers), not how many.

Welcome to MSM: Fox News, OANN, Newsmax, AM radio, New York Post, and a whole big assortment of 'my both sides' sources like CBS, ABC, NBC, CNN, New York Times, etc., and Republican-run Washington Post.
