Media and news are changing faster than ever. New tools, platforms and outlets are being accessed every day, while mixed in with old remnant networks.
The world has never had so many amazing information resources at its fingertips and yet, this 21st century space is becoming increasingly politicized along 20th century binary paradigms, with the demand for disinformation threatening to overtake real information.
Critical thinking is becoming an endangered skill, and social engineers are taking advantage of society's vulnerability through digital tribalism and mass mind control.
Understanding the media landscape and its information framework will be key to surviving this digital tsunami in the decade to come.
