The Huffington Post Has a Fake News Problem!

As a writer who remembers how hard it used to be to get a byline in a reputable publication, and how easy it is to get a byline online, I applaud this piece. An acquaintance was recently published by HuffPost, and justifiably proud. But I remember when USA Today first began publication and was considered fluff. The days of journalism, with extensive research and fact-checking prior to publication, seem to be over for all but a few. The “trending” theme has taken over. It resembles “shoot-first-and-ask-questions-later.”

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
