Google created Bulletin, which can be a convenient tool for civilian journalists for stories about local events.
How it works
Judging by screenshots, Bulletin will look like a completely normal pretty blog a la Medium. Anyone who is interested in social activities will be able to publish local news, keep a blog and to exchange audio-video content inside the Bulletin itself. The there is no need to run your blog or edition.
These materials will be visible to other Bulletin users who live near the author. In the future, they will be able to verify the reliability of the facts and form the author's trust rating. Thus, Google is trying to bring together the responsiveness to submitting material to social networks with approach to work of traditional media.
And here feyki and clickbate?
Modern media are in crisis, o than trumpet literally everything. Journalism has merged with blogging, becoming more fun, but less professional. This resulted in crisis of fake news and clickbate, which helped Trump become president, and deprived Mark Zuckerberg of a dream . If the story with Bulletin will burn out, then the Google will actually have its own news service, with which can not be ignored.
While Google only reported on that Bulletin is testing in Nashville and Oakland, where so draws work of local journalists.
