I like to see this new movement as a raw form of democracy. If we wanted to keep receiving our news from the same outlets, why are they struggling?
We relate to that which has meaning to us, and the connectivity of the internet allows us to identify and informally "elect" sources we deem reputable by continuing to consume the information they provide.
From the day we are born, we bring our experiences with us in our interpretation of what we consider to be fact (truth), and despite the source, journalists are not exempt from this.
I can understand your concern over the spread of negative propaganda, but there is nothing currently in place to prevent misinformation from happening now.
What we are seeing is the emergence of multiple viewpoints (not just A vs. B), and the ability for interaction, refinement, and questioning of validity within those viewpoints. In doing so, we should be able to establish clearer frames of reference and develop autonomous thinking, rather than revert to a herd mentality.
