In the United States, fake news is a big problem. According to a Pew Research Center survey, Americans view fake news as a bigger problem than other critical issues, such as terrorism, immigration, climate change, and racism.
Fake news has eroded trust in the media. A Reuters Institute study finds trust in the media ranked last in the United States among 46 countries.
There is more partisanship in the news than ever before. Partisan news platforms tend to create stories that appeal to their audience. They place more emphasis on reinforcing their partisan echo chamber than being informative. Unless the trend of “infotainment” is reversed, the American Republic will disintegrate. “An educated citizenry is a vital requisite for our survival as a free people.”
