5. Not all articles give you the full story. They often give you one half of it and then leave you to go and find the rest. Making that article or story not very reliant, also called fake news. This article was one of those articles. It had links all over it connecting to the rest of the story instead of complying it into one. Also news companies will only tell what they have so that they can get the jump on the competition. Clickbait is another thing the media uses. That is why you will find some articles of the same story have complete different headlines. They try to attract attention to their page and article without supplying the full coverage of the story. Other media outlets will come together and form sort of a "team", basically "you supply this end of the article and we'll supply this end of the article and then we will make a profit off the same story".
