When I'm at work I'll often read the news during breaks or lunch, I take note of interesting article and send them to myself so I can look them over
at home as well.
There are times when I have received my own emails and wondered what I found so interesting... and yesterday I found something odd happening ...
I found this article
interesting - at first I had found it
interesting because it had quoted a gentleman stating the the US economy is weakening at an accelerating pace (or something to that effect). But if
you read the article, there's not a peep about that in there anymore.
Yet, if you google the article with: TOPIX + us economy weakening
as the keywords one of the top 3 results will have the quote in it
Japanese Stocks Tumble; Topix Has Record Opening-Day Fall ... ``The U.S. economy is weakening at an accelerating pace,'' said Yoshihisa Okamoto,
I've also noticed some news on Yahoo! News change as well... I understand editors want to make sure stories are correct or are updated with
information, but wonder why it seems to be "negative" information that gets removed.
I'm wondering if anyone else has noticed this? I find this particularly intriguing because most people only read the news ONCE so, who would
notice? How long has editing of internet news been going on? How quickly do the changes take place? Is it only negative information that gets
edited out? I'll be looking at this with much more detail in the coming weeks...
