In our world today, getting unbiased and fact-based reporting is a big challenge. We have the power of the internet to verify every article that we read online, but there are just so many things that can get us farther away from the truth that go near it. With the rise of fake news peddlers selling off their lies as the truth, people are easily being swayed by their manipulation.
No one knows the real motive of these fake news peddlers for doing what they do, but one thing is certain: the lies that they spread about our world only contribute to further political divide, until everything turns into chaos. We just can’t afford to see more people arguing among themselves over things that are made up by someone with his or her own vested interest.
We always say that our society needs to undergo major changes to fix the problems. However, the path towards change will not be that easy, especially if the people in power are the ones that feed us with lies. Also, calling for change is actually a bit more complex than anyone has thought it would be. For one, changing the people sitting in public offices may not equate to real change. It is the current system in place that propagates the same social injustices and prejudice that must be abolished.
