Quote, unquote: Overwhelmed, nagged readers

“Readers are overwhelmed: bewildered by the quantity of ‘news’ they see every day, nagged by intrusive pop-up ads, confused by what is real and what is fake, and confronted with an experience that is neither useful nor enjoyable.” 
-- Guardian editor-in-chief Katherine Viner, in a speech to staff, published in Press Gazette.  She warned that the dominance of the "duopoly",  Google and Facebook, was crushing the current business model supporting journalism as they “swallow digital advertising”.
