Five, in this social media universe that we live in, news has changed and so have election campaigns. Yes social media gives a platform for various political groups to express themselves. Rather than spend money on tv ads and printing of brochures and posters, for a very few dollars, your party's platforms can reach thousands with websites, Facebook, and twitter. This is a positive and a negative. Yes it allows information to flow, but it also allows extremist groups to get their say as well. Nazis, flat earthers, and anti-vaxxers have all seen their membership grow thanks in part to Facebook and Twitter which allows them to publicly share their views almost free of charge. And some organisations like Fox News have become more opinion and ideology driven, and tend to shortchange the facts. Although it has always been there, bias seems to more and more present in our news coverage.
