Deepnews.ai apparently uses paid journalism students for its evaluations. I'm reminded of when my first wife was working at the Alumni Print Lab of the Columbia School of Journalism in 1970. While working on their election issue, she mentioned to the kiddies there that I was voting for James Buckley for U.S. Senator from NY on the Conservative Party line. Not a single one of the J. School students had even heard of another person voting for Buckley, who ultimately won the election. Several did not even know he was running. So LOL at the concept of unbiased J. School students.
