Biden and Trump Voters Were Exposed to Radically Different Coverage of the Capitol Riot on Facebook

Data from The Markup’s Citizen Browser project shows the different realities Americans inhabited on Facebook last week.

By analyzing Facebook feed data from hundreds of the panelists in the project, The Markup found that panelists who voted for Joe Biden in the 2020 election were more frequently exposed to news stories from nonpartisan outlets directly covering the riot at the Capitol and the certification of Biden’s win, like The Washington Post and The New York Times, while our panelists who identified themselves as Trump voters in the 2020 election were more likely to be exposed to conservative news coverage, led by online outlets like The Daily Wire and Breitbart.

The two groups were exposed to barely any of the same news stories.
