Not so much anymore. I don’t think most people believe a damn thing mainstream media presents anymore. People get it. They attempt to manipulate and brainwash. People are tuning out by the hundreds of thousands — and articles just like this one right here confirm that this is the right choice.
The real news has been on Twitter, Facebook and Medium for quite some time now. Mainstream media though, has gotten hip, therefore a deluge of their fake crap and extreme crap is on social media too. It is up to people to be discerning and we are. Rejection of nontruth and propaganda is key. And it is happening. People are waking up.
