Mark Zuckerberg recently announced that Facebook would begin prioritizing high-quality news on the social network by allowing its users to rank news sources that they see as the most credible and trustworthy citing “too much sensationalism, misinformation and polarization in the world today.”

Shortly after this statement was made, the New York Times’ stock jumped nearly 9%, indicating that the public’s interest in Real News has hit the comeback trail. For newspaper companies and newspaper readers across Pennsylvania, it never left.
