"Operation Mockingbird" just got a whole lot cheaper to implement.

With rare exception (read: Dave), I'm not sure it would make much difference these days. The news people have gotten pretty robotic.

I replaced Microsoft with Apple a few years ago. In fact it was about the time Windows 10 came out and my computer kept wanting to update itself.

Orange you glad you did!

I was going to switch to Apple, but Cortana told me she couldn't allow that.

I replaced Microsoft with Apple years ago. No regrets.

All media is facing this. Radio has done this for some time. In a failed effort to stave off bankruptcy, both Cumulus and iHeartRadio laid off hundreds of folks and replaced them with automation. Hal will be doing all media before you know it.

No one will notice... will notice... will notice...

I replaced my PC with a Mac back in 1984, and I've never regretted it. As for journalists, I've never believed much of what Microsoft says, so this could be a positive step.
