Fake News on the Net

Chew over this NYPost quote from a media blog startup CEO:

“The vast majority of articles, videos, and other ‘content’ we all consume on a daily basis is paid for–directly or indirectly–by corporations who are funding it in order to advance their goals.” [Medium boss Ev] Williams wrote. “And it is measured, amplified and rewarded based on its ability to do that. Period. As a result, we get…well, what we get. And it’s getting worse.”

So watch yourselves out there. There’s a war on for your mind, as some wise but oft-discredited person has said.

  3. Nice to know even @ev is cynical these days.
