Welcome to the 21st Century, welcome to Information Warfare
Humans are divided into opposite opinions, and media and press are not only under influence but also, most of the times, systematically take sides or not objective positions.
The War on Information is wider than ever, and the horizontal communication is now altered by algorithms.
A context in which:
- Citizen’s opinion is usually manipulated by public and private organisations;
- Media is forced to follow their shareholders’ and sponsors’ interests;
- Information is regularly censored by corrupted authorities
- Freedom of Speech is constantly threaten.
