I will only pay for the truth – as long as it fits my paradigm. Even this story couldn’t resist faking some numbers.
And who’s paying for it? Not many people. Of the 2,011 Canadian news consumers who were surveyed, only 9 per cent said they had paid for online news in the previous year, either in a subscription or in one-time payments
The only other “news” we can guarantee will survive is paid propaganda. The only reporters left are rehashing intelligence sourced fiction. Having fewer might even make spotting fake news easier, as the sources dwindle.
… Or is it the other way around? It’s fun to wonder about some of the most media-d actors in the plane(t).
Barack Obama is a shady character. For example, he is said to have attended Columbia University from 1981 to 1983, but no one remembers him being there. No one. His transcripts from Harvard Law are not available.
