The influence of independent media has declined in recent months. Recent changes to the Facebook algorithm seem to benefit the mainstream media. Whereas traffic to independent media sites has sharply declined. Some sources have complained that they have lost up to three quarters of their traffic.
The changes seem a blatant attempt to suppress independent media, denying people from working class backgrounds a voice, narrowing down debate and enforcing the status quo of gross inequalities of wealth.
