With internet democratising the knowledge space, why is it I’m finding ever so hard to believe in news I get ?
The world used to get joy from watching parody shows. It was not just laughter, but good education too on issues that mattered.
The real news is now parody like.
First, most of the actual news is absurd and puke worthy. Then Media giants make their recipe of click bait headlines. Then social media posts. Then parodies. Then parodies on parodies. Then more social media.
Fake news , fake facts spread like wildfire. The collateral damage of omnipresent social media accessibility.
In the morning I used to get my daily dose of news through Twitter and Facebook. I have given up on Twitter and Facebook as news sources. They are ( it’s actually us, our contributions make those news feeds ) now just about pushing things faster, more.
It’s absolutely excruciating to decipher facts.
So how to survive this madness ?
This is what I do now. Read more. Read more from different sources, like news.google.com, AJ+ and Vox.
I found, the more I read, the broader my understanding is, the more I’m open for different angles.
