In this edition of digital media disruptions: why publishers are painfully hooked on third party platforms, and what we can learn from their dilemma.

Mark Zuckberberg's fake news confessional and the strangely-handled AWS outage got me thinking: does the enterprise have a fake news problem? If so, what are the consequences? And what should discerning readers do about it? I review recent events, and prescribe my four point enterprise BS detector.
