PostSubject: How The Media Really Works, Summed Up In One Brilliant Comic   Thu Apr 20, 2017 4:37 am

This hilarious comic is spot-on when it comes to how we get our information.



With the viral circulation of the term “fake news,” media outlets have been cracking down on their content and fact-checking like never before to make sure their reports are as accurate as possible, but there’s one thing that can’t be taken out of the equations: bias. Each outlet, however neutral they claim to be, has a certain readership that demands that they report on certain topics and angle them to fit their shared opinions, so while articles may be rooted in facts there is still a lot of information that is left out to keep the article relevant to readers.
Even the outlets with the best intentions have something different to say about the same event that another outlet is reporting on, and the only thing that readers can do is take each article with a grain of salt. Unfortunately, even if the majority of readers attempt to not react dramatically to an issue, those that can’t contain themselves then spew misinformation based on what they read from a biased news source and further add their opinions into the equation.
Keeping all of this in mind, Dustin Rogers, a comic artist from Columbus, Ohio, cleverly portrayed this media conundrum in one full strip to point out the basics of why media outlets and people are not trustworthy. View the strip below.
