How do you know what happens in your world? The amount of information just a click away may be limitless but the time and energy we have to absorb and evaluate it is not. Unless you know how to read the news, all the information in the world won’t be very useful. To your grandparents, parents, or even older siblings this idea would have sounded strange. The news was broad-based, only a few decades ago. Your choices were limited to a couple of general interest magazines and newspapers of record, and three or four TV networks where trusted newscasters delivered the day’s news at the same reliable time every evening. But the problems created with the system soon became apparent as mass media spread. Often media cooperation series of scandals showed that democratic governments were also misleading the public. While it was known that authoritarian countries controlled and censored information.
