Social media is better than mainstream media, says netizen


The change of times has slowly unveiled the structure of mainstream media, and its corruption and hierarchy is now visible.

The revelation of mainstream media was through the freedom of social media. Its unregulated opinions, comments, and posts have given leeway for a variety of viewpoints and transparency.

Social media personality and writer Rocky Gonzales emphasized these ideas in his post about the lack of ethics and urbanity amongst so-called journalists.

Even when the mainstream media was tagged the Fourth Estate, its biases still seep through because of their sponsors and associations which control editorial styles and content.

Even journalists themselves have complained about having their news or content changed due to the connections their organization or agency had.

In these times when the Fourth Estate is threatened by oligarchy and partisanship, Gonzales argues that people turn to social media for truth.

In his full post on Facebook, Gonzales said,

"SIPHAYO NG SAMABAYANAN

Kutob ko ang problema ay nasa "mainstream media". Hindi na natin mapaghihiwalay kung para ba o laban man sa Pangulong Duterte ito. Ang kasalaulaan ay nasa buong pahayagan magmula pa sa kurso sa unibersidad na gumagawa sa mga "journalists" natin. Walang "ethics" o urbanidad o tamang pagiisip at pamamaraan na katanggap tanggap na natitira sa industriyang ito. Nararapat lamang na buwagin na ang tinatawag nating "4th Estate" o "mainstream media" dahil gumagawa sila ng mga palalo at mga mapagimbot na salot sa ating lipunan.

Nagbabago na ang panahon at ang "mainstream media" ay kitang kita nating di na kayang sumunod sa agos at daloy ng pangkasalukuyang lipunan. Ang "social media" ay di lamang sapat ngunit higit pa sa pangangailangan ng lipunan at kakayanan ng industriyang "mainstream media".

Nag-aalay ako ng dasal at nagtitirik ako ng kandila sa nararapat at di na mapipigilang pagguho at paglaho nito. Nawa'y makahanap ng mas kalugud-lugod at kapaki-pakinabang pagkakaabalahan ang mga trabahante sa industriyang ito. Ang kasinungalingan at kayabangan ninyo ang nagpapawalang bisa na sa inyo bilang punong tagapaghatid ng balita sa lipunan. PAALAM.
