As it’s evident, there is an exact difference between fiction and journalism. Both fiction and journalism have their peculiar audience, structure, time approach, and style. In the process of the comparison, it’s become clear that fiction can be easily discussed in journalistic articles and it will make it rather popular, while it is not so popular in journalism. Journalistic articles don’t discuss fiction so frequently as it’s not so interesting for the audience; people, while reading any article, are interested in breaking news but not the details of any fiction.
It must be stressed that, unfortunately, during the last few decades noticeable linguistic changes are seen, and it should be admitted that these changes are global in scope. Especially it’s observed in the usage of abbreviations, and borrowings, where Anglicism is the most common one. To the great regret, the published articles are usually full of grammatical, lexical, and spelling mistakes that don’t answer the requirements of journalism at all.
Fake news is the other serious moment. Fake news spreading has become a part of a worldwide global issue, as it can be one of the reasons for different conflicts and disagreements between countries. It can easily build hype and anxiety among the population as such news concerns not only political aspects but also health, transportation, environmental, educational, and other issues. All of these unpleasant moments make people lose their trust. They don’t rely on the news they hear or read. But the given disadvantages make people more watchful.
