Presentation on Digital News

Last Wednesday, two students presented information about the state of digital news in 2018. According to the presentation, a survey conducted by the Pew Research Center found that 2/3 of Americans use the Internet to get their news.
The study also found that Facebook is a popular source of online news.
According to the presentation, trust is low in the news (32% of people trust the news). About 45% of U.S. adults get their news from a mobile device. Two-thirds of Americans get at least some news on social media.
The presentation also discussed objectivity versus empiricism as well as the ways in which the news reflects an aspect of society.
