Can Apple’s new unbiased, ‘fact-based’ news section really remain unbiased?
Apple is continuing to beef up its News App, announcing this morning the launch of a 2018 section covering the U.S. midterm elections, with the section including content from a curated list of trusted publishers.
From Apple's announcement, the section builds on the app's focus on using a team of editors to discover and spotlight "well-sourced fact-based stories." Besides the stories, the section will also include special features such as "The Conversation," a collection of opinion columns about hot-button topics that enlighten readers and introduce them to new ideas from publishers they might not already follow in the app, and "On the Ground," which spotlights reporting on local issues that matter in key races.
