The development of digital journalism

The way people consume news has changed in the past years a lot. The “old-fashioned” newspapers are only a part of a big industry of journalistic work. The news is now being provided all over the Internet, such as social media and personalized blogs. All of the newspapers have an online reader where they update the news several times a day. Consuming news is much easier than it used to be.

Due to this change, everyone can publish news and fake news such as click bait lead to the “poor journalism”. This leads to the trust issues the public has with newspapers; only 44% overall trust the news, the trust is also orientated on the political interest the consumer has, but it is approved that people trust their local newspapers more. 

However, the change and the development in journalism is significant and also very intersting.
