Abstract

In the early 1700s and throughout the 1900s, newspapers emerged worldwide. Apprenticeships were abundant as many young individuals pursued higher education to become writers, undergoing specialized training in ethics and accurate reporting. This trend persisted for most of the world into the early 2000s, excluding communist Russia and other countries under communist or dictatorship rule. In Russia, the state newspaper, named Pravda, was written and controlled by the communist party. Pravda served as the sole source of news the Russian people, all of which adhered to the party’s narrative. The late 1990s saw the rise of the internet, introducing a new information format known as social media, including platforms like Twitter and Facebook, lacking a solid foundation. This prompted traditional news channels, such as CNN, MSNBC, and FOX, to sensationalize the news to attract a larger audience. Due to the political leanings of these organizations, the entire America news system appears to be transforming into one big “Pravda.” The objective of this research is to examine historical patterns and illustrate the potential trajectory of the United States’ landscape and, possibly, its impact globally.
