Mississippi journalists discuss the evolution of daily newspapers

By using social media the loudest groups of fanatics try to drive the conversation, not rational, solid, considered thinkers, Christian or not, to bring a sort of news that is often very far from reality.

Mainstream journalism has been ruined by these phenomena and the danger exists that certain newspapers fall into the trap to survive, also going to use those social media and bringing populist headings (knowing that most of those social media followers really do not go to read the articles mentioned).

Some may consider journalism being dead at last, but we do believe there shall always be voices who want to stir in the political world and show the citizens what is really going on. Several bloggers will continue to provide the insight for free. They shall keep looking to the facts, which are gathered to develop a conclusion, independent of anyone’s motive.

Today in many media we see that sensationalism rules over facts, but there are still some individuals who dare to stay independent and not to fall for financial support to stay in line with the one funding.

We are convinced that after a few years, those who are not taken by social media, their eyes shall go open, and they will see how they could be lured into a world of fake news, and therefore they shall start taking time again to get to know more about the facts, and shall take back to read serious articles, either on serious online channels as well as in printed newspapers and serious news magazines.

But I really admired how Frank, only just a few years older than me, was able to disseminate the news in such a way that all students could relate to. He had a unique ability to see through the official university statements, sometimes on controversial issues, and present them in a way that students, faculty, and anybody reading The Daily Mississippian…

A joint effort of several authors who do find that nobody can keep standing at the side and that “Everyone" must care about what is going on in today’s world. We are a bunch of people who do not mind that somebody has a totally different idea but is willing to share the ideas with others and to be Active and willing to let others understand how "today’s decisions will influence the future”. Therefore we would love to see many others to "Act today".
