The media serves an innately impactful function in society. As one of the fastest ways to absorb and deliver information, the media informs our very opinions about the world around us and the communities we are a part of. Built upon pillars of truth and dignity, journalism has changed a lot over the years and with the rise of ‘fake news’, it has become anything but truthful.
Luckily, major news channels like The New York Times are beginning to change that story with a whole new angle, the blockchain. Delving into a blockchain-based project this month, The New York Times will strengthen authentication of news and work to combat misinformation in the industry.
Meanwhile, there are some headlines we wish were fake, to begin with. Namely, this week’s massive Capital One data breach that affected over 100 million Americans. Whether its good news or bad, we’ll keep you up to speed! Here’s what you may have missed so far.
