The White House is an icon for democracy in the United States, a symbol that populates our cultural landscape from movies, comedy, video games, and our political now. The following video is a White House constructed from Online debris of eighteen years 2000-2018. In the early years of pre-YouTube, we build our knowledge base from C-Span and book reviews. With the establishment of YouTube 2005 to present, we are presented with a growing number of opinions and viewpoints that eventually give rise to fake news. The ebb and flow of political amnesia and nostalgia work together to fill in our cultural understanding of this icon.
