If so, how did that happen, and how do we get it back? The information we need to live in a free society is out there. Why is it not easily accessible instead of hidden behind terms such as "fake news?" Is the media really "the enemy of the American people?" We will learn to cut through this smoke and mirror environment and obtain information we can trust and use. The purpose is not to go after particular political figures, but rather to explore how our ability to get information has been manipulated. We will explore where "news" was gathered, checked for accuracy, and distributed as long as twenty years ago, and what has affected the change to today's "fake news."
