Converging viewpoints

Rather than filtering the news for me so that I only see articles that concur with my viewpoint, Google is, I think, responding to the pull of my search for justice anywhere it can be found. I perceive the opposite effect to the one being suspected, that advertising revenue drives online platforms’ distribution of news to my computer. I feel there are other influences at play. Could it be that interest in these issues is driving the flow of traffic, rather than the other way around?
