Statistically more people in the world get their news from Facebook than any other single news source. The problem is that news on Facebook is trash written by people motivated to have people “share” their “stories” to generate greater revenue from Facebook. They play to what makes people emboldened or enraged, not what true. They are held accountable by no one and few people even pay attention to who generated the article to begin with.
Traditional news outlets have their own problems but as a whole they do are more transparent, more understood, and easier to hold accountable. Preserve traditional media, we can’t let the flaws of human psychology destroy essential institutions.
