The shift in media’s business model played a critical role in Trump's victory (Monday Note)

Final paragraph from a stark mainstream media reality check
"The mediasphere suddenly singles out fake stories on Facebook as a key culprit in Trump's win. It played a role, that much is certain. We can even expect that, someday, Facebook will pull its head from the sand and start acting responsibly. But the fact remains that mainstream media and their twisted economics can’t exonerate themselves from their own shortcomings. They need to rethink a business model that rewards robust journalism."
