Most people avoid the truth because it could be ugly, painful, and can possibly cause self-reflection. In today 's society we are so accustomed to fake news and the illusion of it all. To hell with facts, who needs such a preposterous thing! This way of thinking is partially our fault because we have the ability to choose if we want to engage or disconnect from the illusion. The rest should be blamed on the media because they have the power to reach and influence the world.
People who work in media should be prepared for the manipulation they will likely face when a politician is head-on into the media’s desire to seek the truth. Well this can conclude media as a punching bag. Politicians who are pleased with a particular news story sometimes praise the reporter for fairness and objectivity.

Social media has developed a large interest in news online and the need for us to share information with others quicker and easier. The downfall of social media is that people post lots of false stories. Once false content is posted for all to read about, people in the mainstream media can be sued by the person who they have released information falsely about. (Anon., n.d.) Social media has changed the industry. News makers that are communicating directly with the audience with the use of social media are overtaking news organizations.
