Is it within the realm of journalistic ethics for bylines to be fake? (I’m asking even though I already have an answer.)
That’s just one of the questions raised in this radio report about the operation of Journatic — a so-called hyperlocal news service hired by the Tribune Co. to replace the local news coverage once produced by local reporters.
Automatic journalism or journalism heretic?
Shocking! The Tribune now says it is “investigating” — suggesting it did not know the content on its own pages.
