If you think slanted news and multiple perspectives is new, it’s not. This is from the 8th Boy Scout handbook, from the 1970s, the edition prior to the one I had. News that emphasizes or deemphasizes points isn’t fake, it’s biased. You can find news that’s less biased / less slanted but it always has an overall point of view. The growth of tabloid “completely untrue” news-like headlines for entertainment has grown though.
