As Media Obsesses Over Russia, Here's How The World Is On The Brink Of Destruction
While Donald Trump targets the media as "fake news" for saying things he doesn't like, many U.S. citizens started to realize decades ago the media is corrupt. From upholding government narratives, to ignoring the issues that matter most, all trust in the media has been lost.

So take, say the huge issue of interference in our pristine elections. "Did the Russians interfere in our elections?" An issue of overwhelming concern in the media.
