Confusion can arise when trying to understand why millions of people still tune into mainstream media. Because of this, they (mainstream media) are still having a huge impact on the consciousness of those who watch and surf their platforms for information about what's happening in our world.
That being said, many have come to the conclusion that mainstream media often does have an agenda, and will push their own version of 'fake news,' while at the same time, labelling other narratives, perspectives and evidence as the real 'fake news.' What's required in this time of confusion is doing our own research, and seeking independent media sources to better understand our world.
Are people even reading for information anymore? Or are they simply looking at headlines on the internet while watching T.V. news broadcasts? Are we seeing what fits our narratives as opposed to what's challenging them?
