You can’t sell news for what it costs to make – The Walkley Magazine – Medium
Being able to sort the wheat from the chaff in large news streams could also benefit any subscription system. It would enable a publisher to package a set of high-scoring news stories and augment them with the same quality archives, delivering premium contextualisation, all in a completely automated way.

Fake News: Teasing out the problems with all of the solutions offered so far…
Even if we somehow manage to solve these impossibly difficult problems of identifying Fake news, verifying accurate reporting, identifying unreliable news sources, and amplifying sources of high reputation, then does that give us an outcome we want?
