The mediums we use to consume news often have too much information, very little insights and a lot of falsehoods. The Pizzagate shooting is just one case that highlights the real-world consequences caused by fake news. This is a dangerous time. We have to be vigilant about what and who we trust from the internet. We have to rely on trusted journalists, publishers and news sources. As a protest, we created Swig.news. Swig is an audio first news aggregator designed to fit seamlessly into any busy lifestyle. With the help of machine learning, our human editors cut through the noise, curate the most important reporting from trusted publishers and deliver a personalized news experience for each user. Our goal is to make it extremely easy and convenient to stay informed. Swig.news is not perfect but it’s a first step.
