The rise of fake news, as well as the spread and popularity of social media, have forced some news organizations to become more selective in how they use their own content.
A new report by the Center for Media and Democracy (CMD), which tracks media ownership, shows that news organizations are using less content to reach a broader audience, while offering more options for consumers to consume content.
“In some ways, newsrooms have gotten a bit lazy, but they have gotten worse,” said David Bernstein, a senior research fellow at CMD and author of the report.
“They are not trying to reach people at the top, but rather people at lower levels.”
That means that people can be exposed to more content at less cost, said Bernstein.
The report highlights a number of changes in news organizations in recent years, including shifting from traditional print to digital formats, as the technology for publishing information on the web and other platforms has become increasingly available to journalists.
Some of these changes have made it easier for journalists to write stories with fewer sources, while also allowing publishers to include more of their own editorial content.
For example, a recent report from the Washington Post found that many news organizations were not using as many sources as they used to.
Instead, they are relying more on social media to spread their content, which has led to less choice.
According to Bernstein, these changes will ultimately lead to fewer choices for consumers, who will end up relying on the news they see instead of the news sources they rely on.
The rise in fake news in particular has become a serious issue in the wake of the presidential election, which featured several fake news stories being spread widely.
According of the Center’s report, this has led many newsrooms to turn to new sources, including online forums and websites that are more trusted than traditional outlets.
But this has also created a vacuum of content for news consumers.
Bernstein points to Facebook as a prime example of this, which is able to use the platforms massive audience to spread stories with significant reach.
Facebook has also expanded its platform with new features such as its news feeds, which now allow users to discover news they would not have been able to discover otherwise.
The problem for news organizations is that they can’t afford to keep all of their content and content management systems up to date with the ever-changing technology.
Bernstein said that the problem of fake content has been on the rise for some time.
“It’s always been there.
It’s just that we’re trying to figure out how to deal with it, rather than just trying to ignore it,” he said.
“If the news organizations don’t get to the bottom of the problem and figure out ways to manage this problem, then we’re going to be left with the same problems we have today.”
