Consumers seek non-partisan resources for news information

Implications - As the war on fake news rages, media platforms are earning the trust of dubious consumers by changing the game and providing multiple perspectives rather than promoting a single message. Inundated with free access to media, consumers are becoming more open to varying opinions and realizing that there is always more than one side to the story. Through offering multiple angles to the news within one resource, media outlets can engage their readers on a much more authentic level, increasing brand trust through transparency.
