News curation is the process of finding, analyzing, filtering, preserving and sharing the most relevant information on a specific topic for a particular audience.

“Social Media has given us access to more information sources than ever, but it’s changing our perceptions of each other and crushing the business model of quality journalism.”

The Denver Post, 3.24.17

“Never in human history has more information been available to more people. But it’s also true that never in history has more bad information been available to more people.”

CBS: 60 Minutes, 3.26.17

“The problem with ‘Fake News’ comes from trying to prove you’re not it.”

NBC News, 12.27.17

“Trust in mass media in the United States is lower than it has ever been since the organization (Gallup) started asking that question in 1972.”

Reuters, 9.15.16

“The platforms now act as “regulators” of the news business — determining what information gets delivered to whom, and when.”

The New York Times, 1.31.19

Attempts to even label misinformation have fallen dramatically short – and the reason is sadly too obvious: “social media platforms tend to use automated algorithms for these tasks, because they scale well.” In other words it takes humans to understand what is truly misinformation or disinformation.

Forbes, 4.17.20

As students are inundated with media messages, the challenge is not to amass more information, but to access, organize, and evaluate useful information from a variety of print and electronic sources.” It's scary out there There’s practically no end
