With today’s era of “fake news,” you never truly can know what’s fact or fiction. Having to check up on the facts is the only true way to determine if what you’re reading is accurate. Today’s news has to be more accurate then it ever has been to be considered credible. That’s not necessarily a negative thing though.
No matter how credible the source, you always need to check the facts and do further research. “Fake news” is everywhere and is definitely a problem. The news should be a reliable place to get your information quickly and reliably. Personally, I try to stay away from the news as much as possible because it is just so negative and only causes me more anxiety than I need.
People need to stay informed but is the news really the right way to get it? Another issue with the news is all of the ads that bombard it. You shouldn’t have to jump through hoops and have to close a million ads just to get to the thing you were looking for. Today’s news is the most reliable and accurate it has ever been and should only get better, but that is only depending on where you look.
