An Interesting Look at the changes in News Consumption.
This documentary shows the way in which we consume, and share, news in a generation where social media & 24 hour reporting from masses of different sources online flood us with fact and fiction in news online. It shows the relationship between mainstream media vs places like Buzzfeed & Reddit, and how that relationship and our relationship with those sources, can be both beneficial and damaging.
We look at the way that both of the mainly shown (Buzzfeed and Reddit) alternative news sources can collate information from lots of different areas and mainstream news outlets to give a well rounded and more inclusive picture of what's happening, but it also shows the trouble with self moderating news sources, and how the attempt to help can spiral into something darker and more insidious, particularly when theories online are taken and run with by mainstream news media.
It is, all told, an interesting look at the changing face of news consumption, and the way in which we as individuals can impact the news and help or hinder investigations.
