In the past decade, the journalism industry has been corrupted by individuals, companies and entities that have gone big extents to build an image, destroy reputation of others and manipulate the opinion of the masses. With the rise of the propaganda and fake news, it has become harder for people to choose which source of information they can trust, leading an entire industry under the cloud of ambiguity.
What is Wortheum?
In this context, Wortheum has developed a platform that aims to become the leading reward offering platform for creating and curating news articles. Wortheum encourages the creation of real news by bringing transparency and innovation to this industry.
News media platforms should serve the public interest and democratic process, making it resilient to institutional corruption within the media system, economy of influence, conflicting dependence and political clients. They should maintain the media integrity and remain independent of private or political interests, transparent about their own financial interests, committed to journalism ethics and standards and be responsive to citizens.
The Fourth Estate or the “social watchdog” that the press was for so long has now become questionable, as media houses turn into power and profit centers just as journalists proclaim to be the makers or breakers of corporations and governments. It is said that with great power comes great responsibility. The technological breakthroughs have given journalists a wider exposure and increased power to mold opinions, but sadly many have chosen to use it irresponsibly for their personal gains.
