Journalism is a classic profession spanning hundreds of years and through cultures and countries. After all, curiosity and the desire to be informed are inherently human traits. As time has continued and new technology has risen, the profession of journalism must also adapt.
In today's political climate, many major media sources have become wrought with claims of fake news and bias. Sensationalism has become a common theme in entertainment, social, and political spheres. The road to where the media currently is has been a long and complex one, lined with politics, technology, social media, and a quickly-changing world with a slow-adapting medium.
The goal of this website is to look at the history of American journalism to understand how we have arrived at its current state.
