Broadcast Anchors as Relevant as Ever in Age of Social Media, Fake News

In the age of the lightning-fast news cycle, social media and fake news, broadcast newscasters’ responsibility remains bringing viewers a concise and objective telling of the day’s stories, said the three main anchors – ABC News’ David Muir, CBS News’ Jeff Glor and NBC News’ Lester Holt – at PromaxBDA Station Summit in Las Vegas on June 26.

“That’s one of our main responsibilities – to break through the noise and give people the bottom line,” said Muir, who has anchored ABC News’ World News Tonight since 2014. “Think about the way our lives have changed – from the moment you wake up in the morning, you check the headlines on your phone. Everything is hitting people all day long and our job is more important than ever to calm things down.”

You or the article mentioned three names. Of the three I've heard of and have actually seen a news clip with Lester Holt. However the fact that David Muir and Jeff Glor are broadcast anchors was news to me. That news suggests that broadcast anchors are not as relevant as they once were.

when we watch news now its pretty much :

www.youtube.com Video from : www.youtube.com


multiple varying streams of pressure that overwhelm the senses. speed, tempo, inflection, word games, context hiding, context eclipse, every type of fallacy appeal, flashing lights, changing colors, stock footage, loop footage. they have to break through that which is of their own making and calm down that which they riled up.

best to:

or at the very least moderate, mute, and read instead.
