The Role of the Media in Today’s World
The news media has historically measured its importance, and its relevancy to our democracy, on its ability to inform a fact-based national debate. However, the media failed to accurately portray the nationwide sentiment that decided the 2016 presidential election and to fully leverage direct-to-consumer channels, such as Twitter, frequently utilized by Donald Trump during both his candidacy and presidency.
