Social media has a strange way to manipulating and shaping stories. This one can change the fate of the country. With the presidential election coming up in November, both candidates are ramping up their social media presence.

Many Americans believe that the media is affecting the election because of broadcasters prioritizing ratings and reviews over journalism and responsible reporting. The two main reasons that media can be biased is that broadcasters can be ideologically biased and broadcasting in the US is almost entirely corporate controlled.

So, what role do you think social media will play in this upcoming election?
