Fame in the Internet Age- the case of PewDiePie

Earlier this month, Felix Kjellberg, also known as PewDiePie, got into trouble over an infamous video that was accused of anti-semitic messaging. His issues have highlighted the role that media stars have, not just in public opinion, but in the context of the internet as a whole. We ask, has the internet changed the influence of public opinion for better or worse?
 Marcus Maloney, a Teaching Associate in Sociology from Monash University came on to the show highlight this issue.
