The future of (fake) news

Be the 1st to vote.

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.
