Fake news is a hot button issue right now and one we’ve covered a couple of times at Process Street.
Normally, the discussion of fake news is a roundly negative affair.
How do we come back from consistently lowering journalistic standards? What does this mean for society?
In this article, I’m going to put a more positive face on and explain why there’s good reason to believe quality journalism is going to make a comeback – it may have already begun!
- We’ll look at broadly what fake news is, and why it isn’t a wholly new phenomena.
- We’ll look at the financial performance of different media outlets and try to understand what economic motivations there are in the industry, plus how that impacts on content.
- We’ll look at the new wave of journalistic opportunities and what you can do to help!
