Google is now a more trusted source of news than the websites it aggregates. Here is some sobering news for anyone in the journalism industry: Online search engines have overtaken traditional media as the most trusted source for general news and information, according to a global survey of 27,000 people by Edelman, a public relations firm.
The data will be presented to delegates at the World Economic Forum in Davos this week. The trust gap between traditional media and search engines is even more pronounced among millennials. The biggest search engine is, of course, Google. And the striking thing is that Google does not actually report on anything, but instead serves up links to stories on a mix of other sites that users, apparently, trust less than the aggregator itself. Perhaps more reassuring, from the journalist’s perspective, is that traditional media are still more trusted than the flotsam and jetsam on social media, according to the study, although faith in the latter is rising quickly.

Les algorithmes utilisés par Netflix, qui analysent ce que l'internaute aime regarder pour lui proposer automatiquement des films et séries adaptés à ses goûts, «ne sont pas suffisants. Fungible. We don’t realize how much news media has changed in the past fifteen years.
We really don’t. I’m not talking about digital first or about blogging or about data journalism or the mobile web or the curation craze. Yes, journalism has evolved and is better for it. I’m talking beyond that. I’m not even talking about the fact that everyone is a potential publisher now, from white-hat PR by universities and non-profits to the advent of blogging by experts and academics (remember that iPhone antenna thing or the ground-zero mosque kerfuffle?) Beyond even that. Journalism’s biggest competitors are things that don’t even look like journalism. Ever since the web was invented, newspapers and other media entities have had to continually expand their view of who their competition is: in the good old days it was other newspapers, and then TV, and then after the web it became other news websites, or maybe Yahoo or Google.
