Tech press prioritize clicks over accurate content

Added on by Chris Saad.

Tech press reports "App is tracking you even after you delete it!!"

Truth is "App is fingerprinting the device to avoid fraudsters deleting and reinstalling the app"

Shameful click bait. It's literally fake news: Taking a basic detail and misrepresenting or exaggerating it beyond all recognition to create outrage.

And after they've been called out, they quietly correct the language with no annotation acknowledging the mistake. To say nothing of the damage and faux outrage that has already spread to other reposting sites that want to cash in.
