Shock and Fraud #63

Editor: Christopher Brennan
Part of Deepnews’ mission is fighting back against the lack of trust online. Is the information you’re looking at misleading you? Is it doing it on purpose? It’s enough to make billions of people peering into their computers increasingly distrustful of the other people sitting in front of their screens. Our Matter of Facts newsletter covers misinformation every week, though this Digest looks more closely at the world of scams and fraud, online and off. We hope this selection pulled together with the Deepnews Scoring Model doesn’t make you cynical, but shows you that journalists are also on the case.

All Eyes on Asia – UPDATE #62

Some countries in Europe have begun reopening in earnest this week, though when looking East it becomes clear that the process of managing the wind down in restrictions will be a long one. This week’s Wednesday Digest picks up where last Friday’s left off and gathers a group of articles about how countries in East and Southeast Asia are coping with coronavirus, from worries about discos in South Korea to the role of Taiwan’s vice president/epidemiologist. All articles have been gathered with the help of the Deepnews Scoring Model, and we hope they help you feel informed.

All Eyes on Asia #61

When I learned that the “reinfections” found in South Korea had been false positives, I breathed a huge sigh of relief. It was like getting a note from the future that things were not going to get that much worse. Global news has never been more important than during coronavirus, and though the amount of foreign bureaus is on the decline, there are still intrepid reporters around the world and local papers digging deeper into stories with global impact. This list, found with the Deepnews Scoring Model, showcases some of them, focusing specifically on the countries of East and Southeast Asia.

Our New Environment – UPDATE #60

Editor: Christopher Brennan
One of the beauties of Deepnews is that by focusing on in-depth articles, we can get a better understanding not just of the world today, but pull in pieces whose analysis and reporting is forward-looking. Many of the articles this week tackle coronavirus and climate by looking at what the world will become after the pandemic is under control, from bike lanes in Paris to oil industry struggles to working from home. We hope that, with some help from the Deepnews Scoring Model, getting good info can help you make up your own mind about whether the future is bright.
