Accurate news, that’s our agenda

Journalists in today’s world are thought of as having a hidden agenda, of stretching the truth, and of attacking certain people. Journalism is claimed as “fake news.”
Merriam-Webster’s dictionary defines journalism as “the collection and editing of news for presentation through the media, the public press, an academic study concerned with the collection and editing of news or the management of a news medium; and writing designed for publication in a newspaper or magazine, writing characterized by a direct presentation of facts or description of events without an attempt at interpretation.”
