Levi Boxell , Matthew Gentzkow, Jesse M. Shapiro, "A note on internet use and the 2016 U.S. presidential election outcome"
"the Republican share of the vote in 2016 was as high or higher among the groups least active online... our findings imply that the internet was not a source of advantage to Trump."

Keith Hampton and Eszter Hargittai, "Stop blaming Facebook for Trump's election win"
"If media did play a role in deciding the results, it was in the mass media where Trump outperformed. As if we needed reminding, a reality TV star is going to be the next president of the United States. And Trump received a significant boost from mass media coverage. "

"the same demographic that is most likely to be disconnected from the internet was most likely to vote for Trump."

Top Voting Machine Vendor Admits It Installed Remote-Access Software on Systems Sold to States - Motherboard
ES&S is the top voting machine maker in the country, a position it held in the years 2000-2006 when it was installing pcAnywhere on its systems. The company's machines were used statewide in a number of states, and at least 60 percent of ballots cast in the US in 2006 were tabulated on ES&S election-management systems. It’s not clear why ES&S would have only installed the software on the systems of “a small number of customers” and not all customers, unless other customers objected or had state laws preventing this.

Carl Benedikt Frey, Thor Berger, and Chinchih Chen, "Political machinery: did robots swing the 2016 US presidential election?"
Technological progress has created prosperity for mankind at large, yet it has always
created winners and losers in the labour market. During the days of the British Industrial
Revolution a sizeable share of the workforce was left worse off by almost any measure
as it lost its jobs to technology. The result was a series of riots against machines. In
similar fashion, robots have recently reduced employment and wages in US labour markets.
Building on the intuition that voters who have lost out to technology are more
likely to opt for radical political change, we examine if robots shaped the outcome of the
2016 US presidential election. Pitching technology against a host of alternative explanations,
including offshoring and trade exposure, we document that the support for Donald
Trump was significantly higher in local labour markets more exposed to the adoption of
robots. A counterfactual analysis based on our estimates shows that Michigan, Pennsylvania,
and Wisconsin would have swung in favour of Hillary Clinton if the exposure to
robots had not increased in the immediate years leading up to the election, leaving the
Democrats with a majority in the Electoral College.

We’re all going to need safe spaces — Crooked Timber
In the standard shibboleth, the best antidote to bad speech is more speech. What Putin’s Russia and Xi’s China have discovered is that the best antidote to more speech is bad speech.

Guess, Nyhan, Reifler, "Selective Exposure to Misinformation: Evidence from the consumption of fake news during the 2016 U.S. presidential campaign"
"Though some warnings about online “echo chambers” have been hyperbolic, tendencies toward
selective exposure to politically congenial content are likely to extend to misinformation and to
be exacerbated by social media platforms. We test this prediction using data on the factually
dubious articles known as “fake news.” Using unique data combining survey responses with
individual-level web trac
histories, we estimate that approximately 1 in 4 Americans visited a
fake news website from October 7-November 14, 2016. Trump supporters visited the most fake
news websites, which were overwhelmingly pro-Trump. However, fake news consumption was
heavily concentrated among a small group — almost 6 in 10 visits to fake news websites came
from the 10% of people with the most conservative online information diets. We also find that
Facebook was a key vector of exposure to fake news and that fact-checks of fake news almost
never reached its consumers."
