Fake news has become a staple of modern main stream journalism. With news outlets focusing on what sells papers and what brings in views, it has become more important to offer head turning headlines and misleading information in order to keep consumers coming back for more.
It is the responsibility of journalists to not only provide factual information, but to provide all the facts, from all sides. There are times where more information becomes available at a later date, at which point an “update” previously occurred. Other journalists wouldn’t even submit and print the original content until they had all necessary information. In the old school form of journalism, professionals believed it better to be second and right to a story than first and wrong. That has gone out the window and now modern journalism is a crap shoot as to whether or not it provides facts, all the facts, or flat out lies.
Recently, Chelsea Clinton, the single child of both Hillary and Bill Clinton (at least the only child of Bill publicly recognized) decided to spread some of her own fake news, directly attacking President Donald Trump for what she “perceived” his intentions to be. However, she eventually was caught in the middle of her lies and called out on it by none other than Piers Morgan. Her apology? Almost just as bad, if not worse, than the original fake news.
