Honestly, I believe it is causing significantly more harm than good. A lot of people put so much faith into these sources, but they’re not too be trusted as entirely honest or genuine. I think they can and have reported accuracy when it comes to certain issues, but whenever it comes to anything that can be politicized then you may get some dishonesty, contorting of facts, etc. Fortunately now, there are many individuals coming up to provide that non-filtered, honest, and raw content that many more are starting to want. Independent journalists, podcasters, etc. The field & soil has been made ripe by the perception of the failings of the mainstream news media.
