The press, Google, its algorithm, their scale

Here's a great quote--illuminating and yet shocking to old media--

The press, Google, its algorithm, their scale | Monday Note: "Legacy media (particularly European media) must deal with a harsh reality: despite their role in promoting and defending democracy, in lifting the veil on things that mean much for society, or in propagating new ideas, when it come to data, news media compete in the junior leagues. And for Google, the most data-driven company in the world, having newspapers articles in its search system is no more than small cool stuff."
