People don’t trust journalists. Not because they miss important facts or because they have a major workload and tend to bypass the fact checking, but because they tailor the news to their personal perspective of the world.

People pick up the easily debunked information and serve it as fact, for exactly that reason. Journalism is no longer a position where truth is the reason for reporting, but a nuisance that can easily be shaped to fit the narrative.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
