I believe that not every new source is equally important because you can just tell lies but this is normally avoided since the news source would not get as much notice from the public. Being biased can ruin your career.
A great example of this is in a county in South East Asia called Myanmar. There is a crisis in the county mostly started by the people making rumours that the small Muslim community called “The Rohingya” are from another county called Bangladesh. The military took notice and reacted giving the small county less education and just worst health care. The Rohinyga couldn’t stand the amount of racism being sent their way, a small group of the Rohingya
Fired back with an attack on the military. The military responded in violence and set fire killing thousands of rohingya. Aung San Suu Kyi (the leader) responded saying that it is the Rohinyga is responsible to the Attacks from the military. She is saying this because she doesn’t have full owner ship of Myanmar the military does, if she is negative she could be in lots of trouble.
