‘The Social Dilemma” (2020) is being offered for free viewing on YouTube by Netflix – just until Sept 30.
Nominated for 7 Emmies, here’s what Roger Ebert said about it:
The more we learn about the insidiousness that underlies social media in the new documentary “The Social Dilemma,” the more it seems like the film is bringing a sling shot to a nuclear war. What we learn in this movie is that our brains are being manipulated and even rewired by algorithms that are designed to get our attention and make us buy things, including buying into distorted ideas about the world, ourselves, and each other.
The Long Island Media Task Force was formed as a non-partisan organization in October 2013 to address the widespread discontent with the current state of local news coverage. We are spurred by the public’s sense of being kept in the dark about much of what’s essential to know in order for our democracy to function.
