Change is to blame for the status of news in the 21st century. We have more news sources than ever before in human history and the number is growing.
Who is to blame for this sea change and its impact on society? Apple.
What did Apple do? While it’s true that Apple did not invent the internet, from iMac to iPhone, to iPad, Apple has helped to grow personal access to the internet, and that has caused many billions of people to require ever more sources of information, and many millions of content generators– for better or worse– to oblige that hunger.
There is so much bad quality news and information that people cannot figure out which is which; good or bad, truth or fake.
