Mark Thompson Delivers Speech on Fake News

Mark Thompson, President & CEO of The New York Times Company, today delivered the below remarks to members of the Detroit Economic Club:

Digital media and the battle for the facts

In recent weeks, the weeks since one of the most divisive and perhaps momentous elections in living memory, the news has itself become the news.

And we can't leave out Pizzagate, though I think if this particular group had any sense, they'd just stfu about that! A liar always explains way too much:

Pizzagate

On the 4th of December, a man was arrested in Washington DC after firing a rifle in a pizza restaurant which has been linked to “Pizzagate”.  For enlightenment on that, let me turn to “YourNewsWire.com”, which promises “News. Truth. Unfiltered.” And which, if nothing else, certainly delivers on the “unfiltered” bit:
