I can understand why the old media types dislike the internet. It’s a threat to their quasi-monopoly on utterance of news and opinion. But I’m not sure that explains this one .  Whatever it is that motivates the writer’s grumpiness, I was amused by this quote:

Information” is not the same thing as “fact”. But eventually, we forget the distinction and uncritically accept all information as truth.

We do?    We know for a fact that we do that?
