The media has created it’s own downfall because of social media. Journalists wanted to have some popularity for themselves — Pierce Morgan. Through that they were sold to the highest bidder. We all know celebrities, who pay journalists to be there with a camera when they fall out of a limo.
When journalists sold themselves, fake news and bias became everyday occurrences. The clever people in society stopped trusting what they were saying and stopped tuning in.
Then to get the popularity back they started having to report on the celebrity lifestyle and stopped reporting the real news.
In the UK we have had three years of nothing but Brexit. This person said this, that person said that — yawn. Our media has been completely void of any reporting on world issues, bombing etc.
Old fashion, investigating journalists are as extinct as honesty, values and manners.
Great thought-provoking post.
