Very soon, the word “news” will permanently be preceded by the word “fake” to always and forever be referred to as “fake news.”
This is because the “news industry” is divided into individual, profit-seeking companies instead of a community of news-gatherers attempting to inform the public so they can keep democracy alive.
Many companies are coming up with their own mini-campaigns to promote Freedom of the Press and the First Amendment. In doing so, they are splitting their messages and, usually, aiming at their own audiences instead of the general public (especially those professing a distrust in the news media.
The legitimate news media needs a massive outreach campaign with billboards, surprise placements etc. They need to cooperate in defending freedom of the press.
If they don’t, more and more people will stop referring to “the news” and begin calling it “the fake news” all the time. This is already beginning to happen and it is not going to get any better until the MSM legitimate media bands stops looking out for their own individual skins and realize we are all in this together.
