At the Top of the News Hour

Couple of quick headline items this week to share. My time seemed to disappear this week but still thought these items were interesting. First, involves misinformation about the coronavirus and the second item was an announcement by a very popular Maine celebrity.


First: World Health Organization Working with Google

The World Health Organization is working with Google to ensure that people get facts from WHO first when they search for information about the new virus that recently emerged in China.


Second: Stephen King has quit Facebook after voicing concerns about false information and privacy.
