Tech is realizing that many reports of matters where they have first-hand knowledge are distorted or outright false, like the Bloomberg Big Hack story.

This is breaking Gell-Mann amnesia across the industry.
Cover story that was flatly refuted by Apple, Amazon, DHS, and the industry at large. No retraction.
Another egregious example was the fake news story on how Dorian Nakamoto was Satoshi. Rebutted at the time, never retracted.

"Newsweek stands strongly behind Ms. Goodman and her article."
So many more examples that were distorted or exaggerated.

- Macedonians (the original "fake news")
- FB IRA & Russian ads (played both sides, budget was small relative to campaigns)
- Cambridge Analytica (overhyped their profiling and the credulous bought it)
