During a time when Televison News was a main source for world information, we could not interactive with the information we received like we can today on the internet and social media, then, it was all one way for decades so the information we were given was what we took because we had no other way of receiving other information. This is why TV news used to be so important, because it essentially controlled how people thought and what they believed for years.

The social media world today keeps us connected 100% of the time with people around the world, in our cities, our countries, everywhere. And when something happens in the world, including news worthy events, people turn to their social media outlets to talk about it. We can now share opinions on current events with others across the world, its a new and interactive way to stay informed, and not only can you get the facts, but also the public's opinion, and discuss and share and go above and beyond what any simple Tv news broadcast could.

Walter Cronkite was a CBS news anchor for 30 years. During his prime as the anchorman hosting the CBS evening news, Cronkite was often cited as "the most trusted man in America". One of Cronkites most notable broadcasts was in 1968, during a moment of personal opinion stated that he believed the Vietnam war to be a lost cause. This had such a substantial impact on the country's public opinion that it led to the then current president Lynden Johnson not running for re-election. Since TV news then was the #1 source of all news information, Cronkite delivered such important information to the world for so many years that trusted everything he said. The difference is, at that time there were not many other sources people could turn to.

We were once blind to the subtle techniques new stations used to up their credibality because TV news itself was all still new to us and people did not know better. Today, although such techniques still have their effect, we are much more aware of their presence and use, since media became a subject of study. Transparancy Fallacy was necessary to TV news in history because it needed to maintain its credibality BECAUSE it was the main source of news information at the time. People needed to believe what they were hearing and seeing and trust it.

With today's technology, television news is no longer the only source of trusted news information. With the click of a button on our phones, laptops, ipads, etc. We have hundreds of sources at our fingertips and more information a person could fathom. Due to this development, people today are, or believe they are, much more informed than they once were, because they always have the ability to check the entire web. We have the ability to know things on our own now.
