And speaking of fake news, colleague Barbara Marie Brannan on the headline that promised a half-price MacBook:
Everyone knows that a Hyundai Elantra is basically a half-price Lexus, right? So, imagine my surprise with the new Asus USB-C Chromebook is not really like a half-price MacBook. Actually, it’s more like half a MacBook for half the price.
As interesting is the comment section.
The phrase should NOT be applied to a column in which a writer expresses a tech opinion on products, no matter how wrong-headed or offbase it seems to us.
So, what defines ‘fake news?’ Opinion? Disagreement with an opinion? John Nolte:
The mainstream media put itself on the 2016 presidential ballot, lost, and now they want to silence competing ideas by smearing, marginalizing and, yes, blacklisting us as spreaders of Fake News.
Yet, conservatives have demonized supposedly left-of-center traditional media much the same way, now and for decades in the past. What goes around, comes around, and what’s coming back around does not benefit anyone. We all lose when all news has no value.
