Bloomberg Opinion via Stars and Stripes: The danger in Twitter, Facebook defining the truth. “It’s true that misinformation is rampant online. One is reminded of what Isaac Asimov called Gennerat’s Law: ‘The falsely dramatic drives out the truly dull.’ There’s a lot of the falsely dramatic floating around out there, and people tend to gravitate toward the bits that make the other side look worse. Nevertheless, the tech giants, by passing judgment on what’s too unreliable to be seen, are taking tentative steps down a road that’s rarely led anywhere good.”
