From Russia With Poison
“So long as there is no personal responsibility when these big [main stream media] companies breach consumers’ trust,---then nothing is going to change.”---paraphrased.
Friedman admits that social media is a 'threat' to the main stream media:
'One reason Facebook was slow to respond [to Russiagate] is that its business model was to absorb all of the readers of the mainstream media newspapers and magazines and to absorb all their advertisers — but as few of their editors as possible. An editor is a human being you have to pay to bring editorial judgment to content on your website, to make sure things are accurate and to correct them if they’re not. Social networks preferred to use algorithms instead, but these are easily gamed.'
