Fixation on Fake News Overshadows Waning Trust in Real Reporting; New York Times, 11/18/16

John Herrman, New York Times; Fixation on Fake News Overshadows Waning Trust in Real Reporting:
"Media companies have spent years looking to Facebook, waiting for the company to present a solution to their mounting business concerns despite, or perhaps because of, its being credited with causing those concerns. Some have come to the realization that this was mistaken, even absurd. Those who expect the operator of the dominant media ecosystem of our time, in response to getting caught promoting lies, to suddenly return authority to the companies it has superseded are in for a similar surprise."
