Big Media vs. Big Tech

Late last week Facebook fired the first shot in the coming war between Big Media and Big Tech. In response to legislation that passed Australia's House of Representatives, but had not yet become law, that would require Facebook to pay Australian media companies anytime anyone linked to, or shared, an article from a news organization […]

It took 5 paragraphs to get to the part where it explains that this "interview" was by a random guy accosting Kent on the street and asking him questions.

GOP congressional candidate Joe Kent's ties to white nationalists include interview with Nazi sympathizer https://www.cnn.com/2022/09/30/politics/kfile-joe-kent-ties-to-white-nationalists-nazi-sympathizer/index.html

It's become a losing battle, but I'm glad @jessesingal stands with the dwindling camp of journalists who don't believe every sentence they publish must be laced with propaganda. If only there were some journalism professors still in that camp.
