Tech subjects and the media

I have been known, from time to time, to make ... "unkind" ... remarks about the ability of the general (and sometimes even the trade) media to gets things right when addressing technical, and particularly infosec, topics.

 

So I was intrigued to find that I'm getting some agreement from scientists in general.  They are even calling it "fake news."

 

I'm not sure if the media, under increasing pressure from the online world, is getting worse, or if people are getting fed up, or if the increasing mass of reall fake news (mostly from the online world) is making people more attuned to the problem ...

As Marshall McLuhan, once said "the media trains our perception". His philosophical teachings still hold true even in today's world of information warfare. That is what it is my friend. Search for truth.
