Palm Beach, Florida (CNN) “I have no idea why we’re even here.”
That’s what Michael Sivak told a local reporter at a Palm Beach newspaper.
He’s an independent filmmaker who has spent nearly a year documenting his search for answers.
“We’re the only ones here that have this idea that we’re not part of the mainstream,” Sivack said.
The search has taken him and his team six weeks to complete.
The most difficult part of this process, he said, is the fear of ridicule and being labeled a conspiracy theorist.
Sivack and his colleagues are in a battle for the public’s attention and the perception of the state of American journalism.
It’s an issue that is playing out in front of a national audience, where journalists are under attack for the work they do and their dedication to journalism.
A study by the Media Research Center found that journalists in 2016 had lost a total of 17,828 jobs.
The news is getting more polarizing than ever before.
In the U.S., the number of people who watch news online has jumped from 14% in 2015 to 26% in 2016.
That’s an increase of 3 million people.
But that’s not the only change.
As the number in the U-verse has increased, so too have the opinions about news.
The number of “reporters who said they are biased” in 2016 jumped to more than 1 in 5, the report said.
A Gallup poll found that Americans distrust the media more than at any point in their lives.
Some believe the media has been politicized in the last year.
President Donald Trump’s criticism of the media’s coverage of the 2016 election has helped to fuel the media fire.
He has accused media outlets of fabricating reports and distorting information.
When asked about his new film, Sivacks story centers on a small town in Florida where residents are tired of the constant noise.
One man who works in the town said he has been called a conspiracy theory, and a rumor has been circulating that the city is being flooded with millions of dollars worth of plastic bags.
Sivak, who has received some support from the community, said he is working with a group of local activists who are working to fight back against the noise.
They have been filming, he told CNN.
We’re not here to make money, but to do this to change the culture.
But the fear isn’t just that the noise is being generated in the community.
It’s also a perception that the community is a bunch of conspiracy theorists, he added.
The fear of being labeled as a conspiracy-monger and a conspiracy thinker is so strong that the Palm Beach Sun recently had to change its name from the Palm Island Times to The Times of Palm Beach.
Sivacs name is part of a campaign that includes the Palm Islands Times, the Miami Herald and The Palm Beach Post.
There are plenty of other challenges, too.
The paper reported that its website had 1.3 million unique visitors in the first quarter of this year.
SIVACK said that the website is not growing at the rate of the other papers it is competing with, the Sun reported.
Still, SIVAK is optimistic about his work.
He said he and his fellow filmmakers hope to make a documentary about a woman who lost her son to gun violence.
