Abstract

Recent revelations that one search engine is already removing links to news in response to the European Court's "right to be forgotten" ruling, and that a major social media provider has been conducting an emotional impact experiment by tinkering with users' feeds, raise important issues about the integrity of news. As another study reveals that journalists are now more likely to source news from social media and less likely to check it - despite its known unreliability - there are new challenges for information professionals in how they source and disseminate news within their own organisations, and how they encourage end-users to evaluate it.
